Default Court Houses & Post Offices

County Court Houses and Post Offices throughout (some parts) of the US of A and Canada (that we have visited, and where I could be bothered to take a pic), are really something.

Revelstoke, BC


Red Lodge, MT


Walden, WY


Silverton, CO


Mesa Verde National Park


Independence, CA


Bridgeport, CA


Hopefully, more to come.

It seems North Americans take pride in a good court house. The one in Ephrata, WA, where my sister lives, is a magnificent neo-gothic building, in what is a small backwater town.

In Walden, the street next to the Mighty Court House was a contrast.

Strange you mention that, we had not been through any snow since just south of Silverton. Snow is often in the background, in them far hills, but nothing to touch drive or walk through. But just north of Bridgeport we drove over Monitor Pass, 8,314ft to find this:







This is a "winter closed" road. At the summit, I was talking to a female cyclist, she had just pedalled her bicycle up from nearby Markleeville, she said that road had just been opened and that we were the first northbound vehicle.

We are currently at Lake Tahoe, there is still some snow on the ground in some properties, even on the front verandah of a nearby cottage.
