POST 1291; APRIL 17, 2014; DALHART, TEXAS



DALHART, Texas is a bit deceptive at first glance.  An apparent sleepy small city.  DALHART is crossroads for four major roadways, is home for many Dairy Farms, originates a new freight train every few minutes blocking city streets as they pull out of town, home for a State Prison, and supporting a number of Cattle Feed Lots, fattening up the animals for slaughter.

Walked from 7:30 am, CDT (Central Daylight Time) to 1:00 pm (noon).  Have another 5 or 6 hours walk to complete the trek to Dalhart.










Drove SPIA-2 25 miles South on US 54, parked, and did my walking.  Truly not much to see on this stretch of US 54, but did manage some images to share.










A Railroad Crane in a hopper car waiting for an assignment.




















A critter of some sort opened this hole only a few hours ago.  No, I did not see it.








18 Wheeler coming.





18 Wheeler going.




Feed lots abound near DALHART, including this one, home for 4 months for 72,000 guest cattle.

With tomorrow's blog update, additional information will be published. 









Please say HELLO to JODIE, Commodity Clerk of FIVE RIVERS XIT FEEDERS, a JBS USA Company.



A bit down US 54 is the CARGILL FEEDER Company.

This afternoon, met NICK and RED, two "Soul Winners," with whom we together passed hours doing what Seniors across America do... visit to relive and share.  Tomorrow, I will introduce NICK and RED.
