Find Dinosaur Tracks and Ax-Throwing on a Weekend Getaway to Glen Rose

Rivers course through the history of Glen Rose. Settled in 1849 by brothers Charles and George Barnard, this settlement in the northern Hill Country got its start as a trading post. A decade later, George built a gristmill on the Paluxy River. In the bed of that same river in 1909, a local boy discovered fossilized dinosaur tracks. Visitors today can walk among the giant three-toed theropod tracks, found within Dinosaur Valley State Park. East of town, the Paluxy flows into the Brazos River, where the late writer John Graves grew up fishing and canoeing. Graves, a resident of Glen Rose, chronicled a Brazos River canoe trip in his 1960 book, Goodbye to a River, a classic of Texas literature. Just a block from the Paluxy, Glen Rose’s historic downtown square beckons with local shops, museums, and charming small-town events, including a July 4th parade with floats, equestrians, and vintage tractors, followed by fireworks at Wheeler Branch Park.

Moomoo the Dirt Lovin' Cow

Info from Licensor: "The cow featured in this video is Moomoo. She is a Jersey cow who lives on a small ranch in Texas. She has 9 horse friends, 2 dog friends, 4 cat friends, and one Jersey cow friend who is a little younger than her. She is playful, friendly, sweet, and smart. When we brought home her Jersey cow friend, she literally started streaming tears of joy down her cheeks. She apparently loves her dirt, which we were using to fertilize some new shade trees that we planted for her (she will thank us later!). Moomoo is a special part of our family, providing us with fresh, delicious milk and love. We look forward to watching her grow and learn to trust us more as the years pass. We are so happy that so many people enjoyed watching her 'temper tantrum.'"

The Beautiful West Texas State Park Perfect For A Weekend Getaway

As a lover of old hotels with a good story to tell, I have been known to let an interesting-looking historic inn or lodge dictate my road-trip route. That was the case when I planned my recent drive through West Texas. The moment I saw photos of the white, pueblo-style walls of the Davis Mountains State Park’s Indian Lodge, and read its history as a member of a Civilian Conservation Corps project, I knew I had to visit.
