The Midpoint sign in Adrian,
Texas, is nowadays wonderfully equipped to handle the groups that stop
there for a photo op - bench behind for everyone to stand on, new
cobblestones, props, and a shield painted pavement in front. There is
also a recent line of windmills to enhance the background. This is how
it should be, and I imagine the fun as friends gather around it to
celebrate the halfway point of their journey. But it was a lot simpler
back in 2010, when the only thing behind the sign was miles and miles of Texas.
