Big Lake YRE Event
Reagan County

Big Lake is the Reagan county seat. It is mid-point between San Angelo to the East and Ft. Stockton to the West.
The city took its name from a lake once filled by spring-fed water, now it is the largest dry lake in Texas.

Our walk started at the Renaissance
style 1927 courthouse with lots of historical markers.
