Just a few miles west of Mineral Wells was Palo Pinto, the county seat of Palo Pinto County. Therefore we were expecting a larger town....oops not so.
The old gas station across the street was still intact, just missing it's pumps.
A lot of the homes, including this church were built out of local stones,
with the exception of this one that only had a stone fireplace.
Turning south at Palo Pinto on Farm to Market Road 4
the terrain quickly changed to rolling hills and a winding road.
We occasionally passed a small farm,
and glorious patches of our annual State Flower the Bluebonnet.
We ended our adventure back at Mineral Wells City Park where we enjoyed the small picnic that we had packed.
I hope that you too are able to get out of your house and enjoy the great outdoors.
