TEXAS with Dale Johnson
When standing in El Paso, Texas, you're closer to Los Angeles than to Texarkana on the other side of the state. There is a lot to explore in Texas where you will find NASA, metroplexes, the Big Thicket, a technological Silicone Valley around the capital city of Austin. The Alamo still stands as an iconic symbol of the Texas spirit, and the battle is reenacted every year. The second largest canyon in the U.S., Palo Duro, is found here, a fact not well known, even in Texas. Join award winning film producer Dale Johnson as he visits many places in Texas, including the Dealey Plaza, site of John Kennedy's assassination, Ft. Worth with its many stockyards, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Braken Cave where 20 million bats emerge each evening at dusk, Texas wineries and much, much more....
