Flyer Club

One of the surprising things around Lubbock, given its reputation as a place without discernible topography, is the canyon that’s to the east of town. (Here’s more information, and that photo titled Yellowhouse Canyon near Slaton, Texas is exactly the view we’ll have from our future house.)

But I digress.

This is the entrance to a now-defunct radio-controled airplane club. At least, that’s what I’ve heard, fourth or fifth hand. But even if that’s not accurate information (the part about the RC planes, I mean, as I am pretty sure whatever was there isn’t in operation any longer) I like how the sign hangs there in the trees and the little caliche road wanders over the hill.

  1. Nice find. They’re waiting for someone to make them necessary again.

  2. And, thanks to you, I’ve found out what caliche roads are!
