Texan Expedition To Lucy Park Looking For Trump's Log Cabin

This first Sunday of August I decided to escape air-conditioned comfort to journey to Lucy Park to take a walk in the shade of tall oak and pecan trees.

One of my favorite locations on the planet is the redrock zone of Utah.

Today at Lucy Park, near a Wichita River overlook I saw the big chunk of redrock you see here, with a plaque stuck to the redrock informing redrock gazers that the Texas Santa Fe Expedition crossed the Wichita River near this spot August 4, 1841.

This sounds like something Donald Trump would make up. Where is the video documenting this alleged river crossing?  And who was doing the expediting on this Texas Santa Fe Expedition? I suspect some Mexicans were along, due to this area having recently been Mexico til the Texans land grabbed.

No, that which you see below is not the log cabin Donald Trump claims to have been born in.

What you are looking at is the Lucy Log Cabin in Lucy Park. You can rent the Lucy Log Cabin for events like parties and weddings and other such stuff.

Speaking of Donald Trump. And who isn't? If you have been perplexed, as have many, wondering how any sane person could possibly think it a good idea for Donald Trump to be the next American president, I read an interesting article this morning with a good explanation for this inexplicable phenomenon titled A neuroscientist explains what may be wrong with Trump supporters’ brains.

It's a long article. A good excerpt from that long article, which includes something I have said about the inexplicable Trump phenomenon....

“The knowledge and intelligence that are required to be good at a task are often the same qualities needed to recognize that one is not good at that task — and if one lacks such knowledge and intelligence, one remains ignorant that one is not good at the task. This includes political judgment. Essentially, they’re not smart enough to realize they’re dumb."

Not smart enough to realize they are dumb.

I have thought that to myself countless times of late, whilst reading comments on Facebook and other locations. Not smart enough to realize they are dumb....
