Country Girl Gawking at the TALL Buildings!

Country Girl Gawking at the TALL Buildings!

The prompt is “Buildings over four stories high,” but there were no buildings that tall in my home town.  The courthouse was comprised of three dizzying stories and that’s about as “high” as I got while I was growing up!

There was, however, one towering structure in my town:

And of course, there were other skyscrapers as well:

Brave new world!!!

But, just to prove you can take the girl out of the country, let me share some earlier views from the California portion of my trip.
