Walking In Village Creek Natural Gas Historic Area In Arlington This Afternoon With Elsie Hotpepper
In the picture you can see the creek, a patch of pink evening primrose wildflowers and a yellow cord.
Cords of various colors are strung all over the Natural Area.
Somehow manmade cords don't seem all that natural to me, sort of out of place in a Natural Area.
Maybe the correct name for this park zone should be Village Creek Natural Gas Historic Area.
Because that is what the multi-colored cords are for. Doing seismic testing of the Barnett Shale to see if the Village Creek Natural Historic Area is a good drilling zone.
All the Indians murdered in this area, murdered by the incoming Texans, must be rolling over in their collective graves at what their village has become. First a park. And now a gas drilling site.
I must leave you now to do the bidding of the ever demanding Elsie Hotpepper, who is being particularly hot today.
