Bluebonnet Sunrise Along the River

Bluebonnet sunrise along the river just as the sun ray pop over the horizon to wish us good morning. The Texas bluebonnet is the most popular wildflower as people come from long way off just to see them. I have met people who traveled from California who came to see the bluebonnets here. Of course not all years are great it has to do with the fall rains not enough and these hardy plants may not show their best, but just wait a year and maybe the next year will do it. In any case the Texas bluebonnet is still the most popular wildflower people have festival for them, name their towns as the bluebonnet capital so who are we to question them. We loved the tranquility of this image with the sunrise over the water and a nice field of bluebonnets with a tents along the river edge. Spring time in the Texas hill country can be magicali f your in the right place and it bluebonnet season. Lady Bird started this with her Highway Beautification Act and we are so happy she did!

Best Fort Worth Skyline and Cityscape Images

Fort Worth is a fast growing city and is the fith largest city in the state of Texas, it is also the 16th largest in the USA. Fort Worth was once a bustling cattle trading industry around 19th century when it was part of the cattle drives of Chisholm trail.

Fort Worth Cityscape at Sunrise – We loved the view from this location of the Fort Worth cityscape as the seventh street bridge crosses over the Trinity River at sunrise and draws the eye to the colorful early morning skyline in downtown right before the sun comes up. Fort Worth is the fifth largest city in Texas and the second largest in DFW Metro area. Orginally Fort Worth was a army outpost located along the bluff of the Trinity river but today it is now a modern city with many excellent museums like the Kimbell Art Museum. The city did retain some of it western history and they are in full display at the Stockyard where you can see the walk of honor with stars for many western figures like Wyatt Earp and Buffalo Bill Cody and the cowboy hall of fame. Now the area is mostly a western theme for shopping and dinning with that old timey historic feel theme shopping.

Fort Worth Skyline Along Trinity – Captured this photo of downtown Fort Worth skyline in late afternoon along the Trinity river. From here you can see the high rise buildings like the Burrnet Tower, Wells Fargo, The Tower, County Courthouse, Tarrant County College, along with many others buildings along the shore. We love the look of the cityscape along the river from this location. However, this location is not a safe place as once we stopped Fort Worth PD show up to warn us that they would rob us and steal our car so not to stick around too long. We had intended to come back later but decided maybe not the best idea. In any case this little cow town is all grow up.

Cattle Drive at StockYards –  Another capture of the longhorn being hearded down the street at the Cattle Drive Stockyard in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Stockyards now celebrates Fort Worth’s long tradition as a part of the cattle industry with a cattle drive down the street as they would of done back in the day. The city has long been known as a cow town probably because of the Stockyards. The Fort Worth Stockyard is now listed on the National Register as a historical district since 1976. The Stockyards consist of mainly entertainment and shopping venues today that capitalize on the ‘Cowtown’ theme of Fort Worth. The Leddy boot company is located in the heart of the Stockyard along with the Maverick Fine Western wear. Also there saloons where customers ‘can ‘belly up’ to the bar, relax and have a cold beer while in the Stockyards; just like they did in the days of the cattle drives. Many bars and nightclubs are located in the vicinity, and the area has a Western motif. There is also an opry and a rodeo. The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States. On April 1, 2011, the Fort Worth Stockyards Stables were remodeled and reopened. They are located next door to the Hyatt hotel in an original Historic Stockyards building that was built in 1912. These stables offer full care boarding, overnight boarding, hourly boarding, horse rentals on the open trails of the Trinity River and carriage rides. Boarders can ride their horses all around the Historic Stockyard
