So I was back in Abilene this weekend. Hopefully the end is in sight for that – and it’s not a freight train. The drive from Austin can be pretty bleak at this time of year, but I kept my eyes open (and had to take a detour), so I found some interesting sights.
This is a stretch between Brady and Santa Ana, Texas.
Highway 71 between Llano and Brady is closed in one spot, so I took a detour – very interesting. This is the Bethel Chapel outside Katemcy, Texas. There’s an interesting cemetery next to the chapel, but I didn’t have time to wander through it.
The detour took me through Fredonia, Texas. I’ve always noticed the signs for the Fredonia Peanut Company, so I finally had the opportunity to pass through.
