Channing – Hartley County – 04/06/2015

Channing is a very small community where the streets are gravel instead of pavement. The walk started at the Hartley County Courthouse and went around town and then out into the country and back. We found only one gas station there and the gas was 30 cents higher than back in Dumas, so fill up before you head out this way.
