A few weeks ago we took a little road trip near the Texas, Oklahoma border. Carpenters Bluff, Texas is not really there anymore. Very few houses are left. Most all the buildings are demolished, but the bridge still crosses the Red River.
I was there several years ago on my motorcycle and it could still be driven. Today it is closed except pedestrian traffic and graffiti. On the Wooden side, moss has all but taken over several yards of the bridge.
We had a nice time but the wind was blowing so much, we didn’t stay long.
I can’t wait to see what the next adventure might be!
I’m thinking this may be my last post of the mall for a while. I try to stop by at least once a week to see the progress. I was hoping I could have seen them tearing down the Sears sign, but too late, its already in the piles of tin steel and concrete.
Here is a panoramic shot from the raised parking lot to the east. I’m just a little too far away.
SEArS. The letters on the Sears end of the mall have been hanging for a while before the mall actually closed. I stopped by when you could still go inside the mall and could not resist to shoot the sign.

It wont be dangling much longer as the demo crew has started on that section of the mall.

Its kind of funny the barricade is still there. We sure don’t want that letter to fall on anyone!
Collin Creek mall is well underway of being demolished to make room for the new facility.
It’s interesting, for me anyway, to watch the heavy machinery knock this building down. With the precision of a very large human hand, the operators can separate the tin from the re-bar and concrete and place in individual piles.
I will be back next weekend to see how much more is knocked down. At some point I may post a photo time-laps.
