Late September 2019 provided an opportunity for a three day ride through the rolling plains of north central Texas. On the 27th, I rode to Goldthwaite (Mills County), Comanche (Comanche County), Eastland (Eastland County), Breckenridge (Stephens County), Graham (Young County), Archer City (Archer County), and Wichita Falls (Wichita County). I stopped for lunch at Matt Daddy’s on the courtyard square in Comanche.
On September 28, I continued east along the Oklahoma border counties before zigzagging south. I visited Henrietta (Clay County), Montague (Montague County), Gainesville (Cooke County), Denton (Denton County), Decatur (Wise County), Jacksboro (Jack County), Palo Pinto (Palo Pinto County), Weatherford (Parker County), and ended up in Fort Worth (Tarrant County).
I caught a bite at Rooster’s Roadhouse, in Decatur.
I had to be creative to catch this shot of the beautiful courthouse in Weatherford. It sits on an island with traffic circling all around and no place to park. But the parking lot across the street worked well. Situated as it is in the middle of US 180 that divides like a stream to go around an island, the bright red and white colors of this courthouse are visible from nearly a mile away as you head east on 180.
The Tarrant County courthouse in Fort Worth resembles the Texas Capitol building, though without the grand dome of the capitol.
On September 29, I saw Cleburne (Johnson County), Granbury (Hood County), Glen Rose (Somervell County), and Stephenville (Erath County). I got lunch at Greer’s Ranch Cafe in Stephenville before heading back home.
