150th Anniversary of the Goodnight-Loving Trail

Saturday April 16th was the ribbon cutting for Texas Frontier Trails Historic Walking Trail. This is the trail that I blogged about a month ago. You can see that post here.

The guy in the white shirt is the pastor of my church. He's on the board of TFT and was very instrumental in getting the trail opened. The guy in black on the opposite end and the woman next to him are friends of ours and members at my church.

Pastor Kirk shared how he got involved with Texas Frontier Trails and his vision for the walking trail.

A little live entertainment by Ike Mercer.

One of the markers along the trail. I didn't take time to walk it as I needed to take items to Mom at the hospital in Dallas.

There were some beautiful flowers there!

My beloved Bluebonnets were there too!

There was a great turn out and the weather stayed nice even though we had a chance of rain.

Have a good one!
