Staying Texas

Welcome to Cool, TX[/caption] Just over 2 years ago I was making my way from Fort Worth to Mineral Wells High School.  Along the way I came across the VERY small (blink your eye small) town of Cool, Texas.  In fact, the town is only 1.6 square miles in size. The only thing of significance in Cool is the Cool Cafe.

The April trip did offer a very pleasant surprise…fields of Indian Paintbrush and Texas Bluebonnets.  That made the trip worth it.  Here’s a couple of pix.
