Well, it's a courthouse, I guess... There's nothing special about it. I wish there was, but it was a functional building and I guess that's good enough for government work. It is neither good nor bad. It merely is. The cache was simple enough: a pill bottle under a rock at the foot of a … Continue reading 532. Ordway, Crowley County (CO06)
NO. Just plain NO. I would have sworn that this was some terrible decision made in the 1970's, but the cornerstone proved me very wrong. It's amazing how foresighted these folks were in their architectural terribleness in 1958. I could have gone for another Santa Fe Geotrail cache, but I opted for the closest cache … Continue reading 531. La Junta, Otero County (CO05)
So the NPR thing finally happened. A perfect reminder that I can't stand the way I sound, but my daughters sound great!
What a stunningly interesting courthouse! That said, it was a bit dark so I wasn't able to see it in quite the detail I would have liked when I first reached it, and the little exterior lighting there was was enough to overwhelm my low light solution. I got the best and most reasonable shot … Continue reading 530. Las Animas, Bent County (CO04)
Oh my holy mother of crap!!! It took forever to get here! They were doing construction on Main Street leading into town here, so they had it down to one lane and had one of those construction stoplight junctions where you have to wait for everyone to come across from one side before you and … Continue reading 529.

I passed a couple of old friends on the way up here, through a number of towns I've already visited. This was destined to be an interesting trip like none other I had done before, but probably not for the reasons you might be thinking. To explain why, I'll have to tell you something about … Continue reading 528. Springfield, Baca County (CO02)
So, the last entry of my previous trip published on Monday. Unless something crazy happened, I got back from my latest trip last night. I didn't have time to write a full entry from the road and, to be perfectly honest, I'm in no condition to write one at the moment. So here's a few … Continue reading Placeholder? What Do You Mean “Placeholder”?
A lovely courthouse for my final stop in Kansas. By the time I hit here, I was tired. I mean really tired. So tired that I didn't even make notes about the courthouse because I was so done. So you can see that I wasn't kidding... I was beyond commentary at that point. I just … Continue reading 527. Anthony, Harper County (KS049)
I have conflicting feelings about this courthouse. Actually, I can't say they're conflicting. I kind of like it in a weird way, imagining that if Fritz Lang was an architect, he would have come up with something like this. One doesn't expect to see German Expressionist courthouses in the Midwest with such a haunting air. … Continue reading 526. Medicine Lodge, Barber County (KS048)
For some reason, this courthouse reminds me of some of the courthouses in Louisiana, but I'm not entirely sure why. I was tempted to go through the archives and figure out why, but I have a lot of things in my plate at the moment so I don't really have time for that. Besides, I've … Continue reading 525.
