Almost Wordless Wednesday -Fort Worth Nature Refuge

 Never been here.  Amazing.....I thought I'd covered the DFW area. However, the Fort Worth Nature Preserve had escaped my attention. Shame on me......wow - what an experience.  So, Ray and I were celebrating Valentine's on Saturday due to fabulous weather
 Sunny and up to 90 degrees. We wore shorts. Put on sunscreen and carried some water.  With a map we finally figured out some trails and covered 2 miles - with what counted as 4 floors.  Yes, there was some terrain.  Very exciting in TX  - not all flat
  We never saw any prairie dogs.....Alas
 But I do think it was smart they put up a fence.  I saved the poor creatures from Ray!!!
Quite a vista..........we shall go back in the spring. I can't wait to see flowers and greenery in this very natural habitat.  Only $5 per person - a bargain!!!

  6. You didn't see prairie dogs. But it looks like you saw a bison. Or is that a deer? Oh, never mind, it's Ray. Smiles.

  9. Up to ninety degrees already? You've got us beat. We're around eighty today, which still gives me some concerns about how the heck hot it's gonna be in the middle of July. :(

    HA! As if they needed a sign to tell YOU not to pet the prairie dogs...
