Aloha to Dallas - Katy Trail and Historic Sights

Historical author Sally MacKenzie and I walked several days in the morning, trekking over 5+ miles.  Along the way, we discovered the Katy Trail.  From Wikipedia (link):

The Katy Trail is a jogging, walking, inline skating, and bicycling path that runs through the Uptown and Oak Lawn areas of Dallas, following the path of the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, which was known as MKT or the Katy.

Back in Downtown Dallas, we passed the Texas School Book Depository Building ...

... marking a dark day in American history.

Here's the Old Red Museum we spotted from the Reunion Tower (link).

Speaking of the Reunion Tower, it stands guard over the Hyatt Hotel to the right.   We dodged the raindrops back to the hotel.

Do you have a walking path near you?  One randomly selected commenter from my RT posts wins a book choice from my convention stash. Comments are open through Sunday, May 31. I'll post the winner on Monday, June 1, at SOS Aloha.

  5. Yes, we have a few walking paths near us. My favorite are the paths at the man made lakes near us.

  6. No great pic

  7. We have the Rail Trail that's not far from us.

  8. One town over, they took out the old railway and turned into a wonderful walking path.

  9. No walking trails as such, just a path surrounding playground.

  10. there are some several miles away, so for local walking we use the sidewalks.
