Sweetieheart and I were returning my mom to her home in New Mexico. The trip from Dallas is about nine hours so we had to stop several times to stretch our legs. We also had to stop because my mother had just had heart surgery and it was recommended that we stop for her sake.
Most of the time we stopped to buy food or gas. On this particular stop, though, we just needed to walk some. Sweetieheart and I needed to get some movement going. We stopped at the Childress County Courthouse.
At the front of the courthouse is a lovely tile flag. Some of the tiles had been damaged, by my guess, by hailstones.
On a whim, I pulled out my iPhone and checked for nearby caches. As it turns out, there is a cache on the courthouse grounds.
After logging the cache, we walked around, enjoying the view and the fine weather. The courthouse was built in the early 1900s. It still has a lot of fine architectural details. One of our favorites was the lamps.
If you’re ever in the area, take a moment to stretch your legs. it’s a lovely walk.
