Today we joined the Tarrant County Walkers at the Christkindl Market Event in Arlington, TX.  The market was at the very last but I posted a picture of it first to peak your interest.  Hope it made you click over to see the rest of the pictures. Our walk started/finished at the Arlington Visitor’s Center.
