Lake Arrowhead State Park
Wichita Falls, TX
This visit was a return trip, we had really enjoyed this quiet and spacious park two years ago.
Our first date night was El Tapatio, then the next night we went to McBride’s Steakhouse for ribs and ribeye.
Our TV gave up the ghost, and after a quick trip to Best Buy, we had TV in the bedroom again.
The Museum of North Texas History had a lot of exhibits related to the area, but the WW2 model ships were especially cool.
We noticed painted horses outside Wichita Falls businesses, and that sent us on an internet search. As it turns out, The Mane Event began as a project of the Leadership Wichita Falls Class of 2007, raising money for area charities. Over 70 fiberglass horses, painted by local artists, decorate businesses, parks, and facilities throughout the city.
On our last day, we started out to see a few painted equines, and wound up at Lucy Park – looking for the Wichita Falls. This little squirrel just had to pose for us.
This is just a really well laid out state park. I left the “Be Kind” painted rock that I picked up in Fredericksburg.
