Flag Pole Hill was constructed by the|
Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) around 1938.
|The climb up to the flagpole wasn't on the official walk route.|
|There wasn't an overlook, but I liked the old CCC construction.|
|Ed and the flag.|
|Large park pavilion.|
|Rock bar-b-que pits.|
I don't normally take pictures of port-a-potties, |
but this one happens to be sitting in front the
CCC constructed latrine.
It was 37 degrees when we started walking.
These Dallas Trekkers were dressed warmly.
|Heading down the hill.|
|CCC erected this building at the bottom of the hill.|
|We passed to the right of this White Rock sign.|
|We took the trail under the Northwest Highway.|
|Looking back at Flag Pole Hill from Lawther Drive.|
|View of Lawther Drive.|
|A tiny rivulet of water coming down our trail made for tricky footing here at the bottom.|
|View of the Dallas skyline from the top of that hill we just climbed.|
|Ed and Cathy (who was taking a picture of the skyline).|
|Another shot with White Rock Lake in the foreground.|
|Bob, our checkpoint volunteer, in front of the skyline.|
|Some fall color brightens the trees.|
|On a paved trail near the finish.|
|There is that climb back up the hill.|
|Passing the wall the CCC built, and we're done.|
