I posted several threads on skyscrapercity.com about Abilene with many pictures I snapped around town. I don't have time to link them right now, but I will in a couple hours once I get out of class.

I've always thought the area around Abilene was pretty, especially up around Possum Kingdom lake and the Hwy that runs north and parallel to I-20.

Here are some that I didn't include last time. I won't have new pics up for some time. I am currently living in Austin, attending UT. I'm planning to go on an Austin photo tour on sunday or monday, so I might have some of those up, but Abilene will have to wait.

No freaking clue why they're all showing up as just links...I swear I just spent like an hour inserting them all as images. I'm angry.
