My first stop after leaving Oklahoma was Weatherford, TX, just east of Ft. Worth. This is the courthouse on the square.
The next day as I was headed to Sonora, TX, I took a Texas Ranch Road which led me down to Fort McKavett State Historic Site. Unluckily it was raining and I chose not to explore on foot, although I did stroll through the museum.
This was not a walled fort, but a frontier fort. Primary soldiers stationed here were Buffalo soldiers. Although I had heard this term many times before, I did not realize it was the Indians name for the black soldier since he was the color of the buffalo. Maybe I can get back here someday when it is not cold and raining and get a chance to investigate the ruins.
This is what the road looked like for most of my 200+ miles. Nice road, but narrow and no shoulders and very isolated. But it was a peaceful drive even if it was raining the whole way.
