Shade/Structure

This crossroads town has a community center, some ag-industry buildings, and a Methodist church. The historical marker on the church says it was founded in 1915 by the Rev. T. C. Willet, who rode his bicycle from Tahoka to preach here. (That’s about a 40 mile round trip on the current roads.) That was my second favorite thing about the church.

My favorite thing was this picnic shelter next to it, with that tiny square of shade to protect the picnicking parishioners.

The Picnic Shelter (culturally appropriated)

Well…so…this is a real thing that I saw. It’s very near the location of the last battle of the Comanche tribe (which is often regarded as the end of the “Indian Wars” in the United States).

I’ll just leave it at that.
