LaMesa (Dawson County) Volksmarch – 12/30/2014


I walked in LaMesa today to collect my last new county for 2014.  It was 31 degrees with a strong breeze when I started out.  It was 27 degrees and misting rain when I completed the walk.  The pictures are all a little grey because of the lack of sunshine.  The walk started out in downtown.  I passed the above old movie theatre on Main Street.


I passed the Dawson County Courthouse.


Not sure what business this is, but I liked the tornado in the window.


A street lined with graffiti


A Uniroyal Gal figure, dressed as a Golden Tornado Cheerleader.


I should know what this cartoon character is called, but it escapes me at the moment.


Huge Methodist Church.


Smaller Catholic Church.


The temperature gauge at the bank.


Another store had a tornado painted on its window.


The town clock across from the courthouse.


An A&W Rootbeer mural.


Historical marker about a town named Chicago, TX.


Walk circled a small track in this park.


Yes, it was cold!!!

    How fun to see most of your state up close and personal! It must be because it is really cold! !😄

    I was so interested in your Volkswalk that I checked it out online. Unfortunately we don’t have a group in our immediate area but there is one not too far away that I may check out. Sounds like tons of fun! !
