Borger – Hutchinson County Volksmarch – 11/03/2014

The Seasonal Event in Borger gave me the opportunity to pick up another county. There are three seasonals up in the panhandle of Texas and this is our second for the trip.  The walk started at the museum and next door was a photo cutout with the “jail”.
