My hometown Ft. Worth, Texas started as a sleepy outpost on the banks of the Trinity river. It would later grow into a bustling cattle shipping hub earning the nickname Cowtown. Today Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in the country and is part an even larger metropolitan area. In 2003, we knew that we would be moving so the Big Guy could attend grad school, we decided to spend spring break doing “tourist things”. One of the things we did was hit the Stockyards. The photo is dated 2008 because that was when I posted it on my blog. However it was taken in the spring of 2003.
