We collected another new county today when we did this 10K Volksmarch.  We had surprisingly warm weather.  First item that caught my eye was the school mascot on the water tower.

This is definitely a petroleum based community.  There are pumps scattered around in the residential areas.

We started at one end of the park and walked the cement path to the opposite end.

    I was always amazed when visiting Texas to see the abundance of pumping oil / gas wells all over the place.
