Come join us for a walk to explore the county seat of Archer County. Walk the hometown of Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove) and the movie “The Last Picture Show” starring Cybill Shepherd and Jeff Bridges. Hopefully you’ll find time for a little antique and book shopping.
This is not a speed event. You are encouraged to bring along your children and walk/talk and spend some time together enjoying the great outdoors. All are welcome to come walk with us.
