Thorns On The Sidewalks Of Fort Worth
This morning I went hiking, again, in the new, to me, Canyon Creek zone. To get to the Canyon Creek zone I walk on something somewhat rare in my neighborhood.
This particular sidewalk is on the north side of Boca Raton Boulevard. The south side of Boca Raton Boulevard has no sidewalk at this location.
I only walked a short distance on Boca Raton Boulevard, before getting to the Canyon Creek zone. And yet in that short distance I came upon two instances of what you see in the pictures.
Vegetation with rather prickly looking thorns sticking out over the sidewalk.
Or to someone wheeling along in a wheelchair.
I have seen people wheeling along in a wheelchair on Boca Raton a time or two.
Seeing something like a thorn obstructing a sidewalk is something one might expect to see in a town few have ever heard of, like Dallas or Seattle or Denver.
But seeing something like a thorn obstructing a sidewalk in Fort Worth?
A town known all over the planet as one of the Greatest Cities in the World?
That really is just unacceptable.
And very perplexing...
