Just off Blue Mound Road, north of Saginaw.
Having completed 2014-07-23 33 -96, I continued south to downtown Dallas, then took I-30 to downtown Fort Worth. I've never been in this part of the world before, and had always been interested to see what it was like for two cities to grow right into each other. I checked into a cheap motel not far from the Kimball Museum of Art -- I don't JUST drive long distances to stand in parking lots, you know -- and then took a fifteen mile out-and-back trip to this hashpoint. I got there just at sundown. As I was taking pictures, I was surprised by the arrival of a friendly horse. I think it was hoping for a horse treat, but instead it got to share the hashpoint with me, which was cool.
Then, I headed back to the motel! I have three days to get to Denver, and it will be interesting to see if any more opportunities present themselves. With so much land on the plains in either cultivation or ranching, you just have to hope for the occasional coordinates that fall in a town or on a road.
