Friday morning I was at the Lubbock County courthouse by 8:30. Courthouse number 146 was quiet at that hour except for a wedding party and a couple from Minnesota adopting a baby (I took their photo in front of the courthouse). Then, I proceeded to Lamb County (number 147), Bailey County (number 148), and Parmer County (number 149) before entering New Mexico. I arrived in Albuquerque at 3:00 and took nap before attending my cousin's wedding that evening.
Saturday morning I left Albuquerque at 9:30 and drove across the eastern part of the state via Clines Corners, Vaughn, and Roswell, arriving back in Texas mid-afteroon at Yoakum County (number 150). Then, it was on to Terry County (number 151) and finally, Lynn County (number 152) before I headed to Abilene, via Post, Snyder, Roscoe and Sweetwater.
Today, Sunday, I rested at the home of my aunt and uncle, Carolyn and Clark Brannan. However, I did re-photograph the Taylor County courthouse (number 69) and downtown Abilene this afternoon.
Tomorrow, Monday, I'm driving west to photograph Mitchell County (number 153), and re-visit Sterling (number 6) and Coke (number 7) Counties before returning to Abilene for the night. I also intend to visit the Abilene Library to see if they have any information on the local architect David S. Castle.
Tuesday I will return home to Houston, with stops in Gatesville (Coryell County, number 8) and Cameron (Milam County number 9) to re-photograph those courthouses.
It's been a great trip!
Photos and more information on these courthouses will follow after I return home...
