Texas | Fort Worth Stockyards

Took a quick trip to the great state of Texas this past weekend. Planned on doing a lot of photography, but ended up getting sick and had to take it easy. BUT that leaves me with the only option of going back to explore again someday!  After we got into Dallas we went to breakfast at  Yolk  It was extremely delicious! I got the pumpkin pancakes and cheesy grits. Very tasty and a friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend hitting it up if you're in Dallas. 

After food, we went to the Fortworth Stockyards. I'm not sure I had ever seen a Texas Long horn before, but they were incredible creatures with horns the size of my height (5-11). At 11:30 and 1:30 the Texas Long horns fill the streets for bystanders to enjoy.  Little did we know that this weekend was a huge festival for the Cowboys in the area. This was the annual Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering, where cowboys come and set up their chuck wagons to do a cook off. Check out their website: Steagall Gathering 

It was quiet the experience and fun to see all the locals in town for the big event. They offered us food and information about Texas. 

There are 3 essentials you need if you are in Texas: 

Cowboy Hat

Texas Map 

Mexican Blanket 

Now that you've seen the images! Go explore and learn something new!

First buy a cowboy hat and boots. Then you’re on your way to being a Texan.
