Dallas/Fort Worth  Scenery 
at Lake Grapevine

HOME    TEXAS REGIONS


Some non-Texans (who just don't know any better) have been heard to make the erroneous statement that Texas has no scenery, that Texas is flat, no mountains, all desert. That North Texas is a vast monotonous wasteland of cattle farms and horses and people who like it that way. Well. Texas has mountains, Texas has canyons, Texas has wildflowers, Texas has ocean beaches, Texas has rivers, Texas has lakes, Texas has a lot of eye-pleasing scenery. Why this remains a mystery to much of the rest of the world is a mystery in itself. As for North Texas, the photo below should provide some cognitive dissonance to those who think North Texas is a vast monotonous wasteland of cattle farms and horses. In this photo we see an artist applying paint to canvas on a hot day in July at Rockledge Park on Lake Grapevine in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex of North Texas. During the course of painting the artist will have seen dozens of mountain bikers race by on the Northshore Trail. Hikers. Swimmers. Sail boats. And on this day a para-glider being pulled by a boat. But no cows, no horses and no monotonous wasteland in sight.However at the mountain bike trail called Knob Hill at the west end of Lake Grapevine we had a very interesting Mother's Day encounter with a Longhorn Herd.
