Angora Goat Capital Statue

The Angora Goat statue is easy to see when driving through downtown. I was there at night so I missed its true gleam. It has the smile of an ex-wife, I would say. The artist was insightful to have a cactus growing out of the rock the goat stands on -- a subtle connection to the town's name of water and life coming from a rock.
