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

DSCF0980

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.

    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! !
