College Station (A&M Campus) 06/09/2018

We wanted to walk the campus, but the walk registration box is hosted by the Bush Presidential Library which doesn’t open until 9:30…. so we made up our own 5K walk route. We started at 8 a.m. and were finished by 9:30. It was 75 degrees when we started, and 85 degrees when we finished. If we had waited, it would have been 95 when we finished!

We parked here to start our tour of the campus.

We were in shade as we walked by all the construction going on.

We found Bottlecap Alley.
