Comfort, TX – 03/11/17

The Kerrville Trailblazers hosted this event in Comfort.  We did the 5K version which was an out & back on a not so lonely country road.

Ed was the volunteer doing parking lot duty this morning.

He show us his hat and told us about his trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Volunteers manning the registration table at the Cypress Creek Community Center pavilion.

This one room rock school house served the community from 1908-1942.

I think this is a cane cholla cactus.

Cactus, pasture and hills under an overcast sky.

Three walkers topped a hill on there way back in.
