Drive up I-35, with a quick stop in Waco: Baylor & Brazos River. (Not exactly my remembrance from those Saturday afternoon Westerns at Chicago’s Liberty Theater).
(Hard not to wonder how cowboys [and, maybe, cattle] might feel to see an area once spread wide with “cattle goin’ ta market” might react to miles and miles of strip malls, gas stations, fast food joints [well, we can certainly guess cattle’s reaction], and motels.)
Arrive in Ft Worth in time to watch a big “do” get set up in Amos Carter Western Museum.
Museum itself is quite lovely: personal selection of Charlie Russell and Frederic Remington paintings, sculpture and drawings worth seeing, plus expansion to include additional American and Western art. (If you’re curious, check out their website: cartermuseum.org )
