About 3 miles south of Borger on state highway 207, there is a historial marker detailing the first rotary drilling rig used in the Texas Panhandle. It's also a great area for observing pronghorn. The box is at the base of a nearby tree.
The pronghorn is not really an antelope, but the sole descendant of an ancient deer-like family. Though they are very poor jumpers, pronghorns are the fastest mammals on foot in the western hemisphere, capable of sprints up to 60 mph. They carry the only frked horns in the world, and the only horns that are shed annually. Both genders have horns.
This is a letterbox/geocache hybrid, so please sign/stamp the correct log. There is a hitchhiker that you can move along if you wish!
