A Day At The Stockyards In Fort Worth

The folks drove to Fort Worth to visit the Stockyards.  I thought that sounded like a strange way to spend the day, but Mama said there would be a lot to do there.  Actually, Mama was quite surprised by the number of people that were there. 



There is a maze that people can walk through.  It was on The Amazing Race.


A cattle drive is held each day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.




Yep, they come right down the street.

After the cattle drive, the Legends of Texas put on a gunfight.  Mama said the gunshots were so loud that it really hurt her hears.  It is held in an enclosed area and it echoed.


This guy looked and sounded like John Wayne.

The bad guys.

There are tons of shops and museums. Mama enjoyed looking around. They hold rodeos here on the weekend.   The folks are planning another trip soon because there is so much more to do there.



The folks also visited Billy Bob's which is the "World's Largest Honky-Tonk". We will tell you about that later in the week.
