A Texas tourist, Day 2

At long last, I found the Texas I’d been looking for. Some friends and I made the trek from Dallas to Fort Worth and spent the day exploring the true West — or should I say, some of the tourist traps of the West? Well either way, it was a memorable outing full of new sights and cultural discoveries.

Some photos from Day 2 as a Texas tourist:
