Fort Worth and west Texas

On Tuesday morning we drove around Fort Worth. They have an interesting urban man made waterfall and park. At the bottom we were surrounded by falling water, an unusual experience in a city. Afterward we drove to the stockyard area in the "historic red light district" (really - it's called that). They did a cattle drive up the street, about a dozen longhorn cattle and five cowboys. They do it twice a day. All the girls took turns riding a mechanical bull.

We ate lunch at Kincaids, a locally famous hamburger restaurant. From there we drove over 400 miles across Texas into New Mexico. As we drove the trees began to disappear, replaced by scrubby bushes as the climate became more desert like.
