First United Methodist Church, Trenton, TX
It started with an afternoon of geocaching. I was in the area for business Sunday morning and had the afternoon of “wait time” that I used so creatively under the warm afternoon sun. The day was gorgeous. The sky a bit deeper blue as the days shorten in the Autumn months. There are eight caches scattered around Leonard. If scattered is not the most appropriate word, hidden is. I found most of them. And then I moved to the North.
About ten years ago, I stopped in Trenton and drove through on the main path through town and didn’t see anything that really wow’d me. This Sunday afternoon, with my GPS Tracker in hand, but not while driving, I found a few to be found in town and explored. Geocaching in small towns, no matter how stealth we must be, will lead someone to calling the cops. I introduced the officer to this wonderful hobby/activity and he took notes. Surely he will spend this weekend, or whatever day he is off work, exploring and searching/hiding geocaches!
First United Methodist church basked in the late afternoon sun while it’s neighboring and historic Trenton First Baptist Church sits on the block north. At the north end of town, Chubbs Liquor is situated snugly with Ammo Biz with Pilgrim Rest Valley Church seated right next door. I can only imagine the prayers of the church members over the neighboring lot next door. I’m curious of the relationship between the ammo and liquor stores.
The Exxon station sits at the corner of the 69 and 121. I conducted an interview here back in 2010. Working in the rural communities surrounding the Northeast Dallas Metroplex, this gave me opportunity to meet someone from this area. Yes, she got the job.
Get out there and explore. Leave your normal! Remember this: cross traffic does not stop.
