Some have wondered about the landscape in the background of the TexPatch. It’s the view of Downtown Big D (Dallas for the non-Texans) from Oak Cliff generally, and, specifically, from the meandering path at the Belmont Hotel that I pursue while walking my Westie whenever I stay there on visits home. On my last visit I immensely enjoyed the aesthetic that the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge added to the lovely landscape we enjoy from Oak Cliff’s limestone hills. This lovely new bridge is one of the connections to Oak Cliff from places beyond the Trinity River and hosts pedestrian yoga sessions, festivals and all around fun. Like the Dude, Oak Cliff abides.
