Taking a road trip this round.
The original town site was named "Denman" after Marcellus Denman, who had surveyed and platted the new community. The name was quickly changed to "Junction City". In late 1876, Junction City won the designation of county seat from the unsuccessful and flood-prone settlement of Kimbleville. By 1879, a drugstore, livery stable, sawmill, and a few general stores were active in the community. Around 300 people were living in Junction City in 1882. The West Texas, Kimble County's first newspaper, began publishing in 1882. The county courthouse and its records were lost to a fire in 1884. A second, two-story brick stone courthouse was partially destroyed in an 1888 fire, but was repaired and remained in use until 1929, when the present courthouse was constructed. In 1894, Junction City became known simply as "Junction".

  1. I’ve not seen this challenge before, it’s fun, great photos!

  2. I really want to do Hells Revenge, it looks amazing!

  3. Hi! So, Jackie and Junkboat Travels, are both for letter J! Those jeep photos are incredible. I once took a 'Pink Jeep" tour in Sedona, AZ. It was amazing! Have a good weekend, Jackie.

  4. Thank you, Jackie, for the nice rundown on Junction. I haven't been there but my NASA boss had a deer lease and would ask for volunteers to go out from Houston on weekends to put out more for the deer. That was way too far for any of us, he didn't get takers for doing that.
    I am sure the Jam Jar wine was okay. We hardly ever pay over $10 for a bottle.
    I would like to watch but not ride with those Jeepers. One of my rich friends bought a Jeep so that he could have his own when going with his son. Then he bought a nice RV so that he didn't have to go into a town to stay the nights. They would go to the Hill Country for large rock terrain.

  5. That is quite a big challenge for those jeeps and although at times looks scary but all would be great fun to do Jackie. Have a great weekend and stay safe.

  6. I´d be too chicken to go on a jeep tour like that!

  7. What fun...those jeeps really got a workout!
