Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive - Dallas

Yesterday Gabby and I walked over to the convention centre to have our fencing gear go through inspection. On the way at the entrance to the convention centre was a magnificent display of bronze statues depicting and 1800s cattle drive. The place is called Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive.

It is a huge life size display of three cowboys herding cattle. The area is dedicated to the huge Texas cattle ranches and the cattle trails that the cowboys used to bring the cattle to market. Set in stonework on the sidewalk are the names of the different ranches and a large marking of that ranches brand.

The scene of the cattle drive is amazing and there was no way I could get the full effect of it in just one complete shot, so I had to break it down. If in Dallas, this truly is worth a visit.
