I think I want to steal Dallas's LRT ... and maybe the wayfinder signage as well, that's pretty sexy too.

Thanks, y'all!

Lone Ranger: The DART LRT was pretty awesome...and you could ride the red/blue lines down to Union Station and catch the commuter train (Trinity River Express or "TRE") over to Fort Worth, too. For $4.50/person/day (goes up to $5.00 in October), you can ride the DART trains and bus system, the TRE, and the Fort Worth bus system "The T" all day. Discounted fares for younglings and oldings. It's not a bad deal at all...just drive in and park-and-ride or kiss-and-ride and have at it one day.

I'd love to have the LRT here in Greenville. We've already got sexy wayfinder signage, so Dallas can keep theirs. :P

Nice work, Rested Traveller! Pretty tall parking deck you were on!

Quite a day trip!

I wish Atlanta's wayfinder signage looked anything near that good.

The Tarrant County Courthouse looks liek a very attractive old building.

More excellent pics, RT.

That statue/sculpture at Cancer Survivors' Plaza must be a universal one, because I see the same one at different cancer survivors parks and plazas in different cities.

It wasn't a day-trip from Greenville to Dallas...we were visiting family in Tyler, so it was only like 100 miles or so. :-)

That sculpture is the last work by Victor Salmones, and is called, "CancerTheres Hope."

I know, I was just giving you a hard time ;)

Anyways, thanks for posting the neew photos. They look great. Some nice perspectives on the skyscrapers in downtown Dallas.
