McCamey, TX – Upton County – Stamp #167 Collected

Our last new county for this trip was Upton where we walked  in the town of McCamey.  McCamey is between Crane and Iraan and is west of San Angelo, so we saved it for last and plan on stopping in San Angelo on the way home.  McCamey is on the flat but the buttes and mesas are visible in the distance.  The walk starts out through a nice subdivision.

After leaving the subdivision we headed toward downtown and passed the McCamey Garden Club.  They need to expend some time/energy in upkeep on their own building.

    This looks like a super cool thing to do. Love your photos!

  3. I love the horse wall art and large planter photos. When I was in San Francisco I saw a planter made out of old denim pants. It was pretty neat.
