We headed to Merced, CA to a WalMart to pick up our drug refills.

On the way we went through La Grange, CA, the great little 'olde' town!.. Fascinating and fun to explore. It also deserves an Entry as we not only discovered this very interesting town - we ALSO stumbled on the BUFFALO RANCH.

Just look at the pictures!

While we were taking the pictures, another car had stopped and they were doing the same. Finally, they asked us, "Don't you have cows in Florida?" - that was while we were photographing the baby Longhorn and the big ones too, the piggy looking-cow and the Brahamas - I told them we did, but not hard by the road like this with them all mingling together...and, we are tourists and that's what tourists do.

La Grange, CA was established in 1848. Current Population: 250. Elevation: 250. The whole town should have its own historical marker!
