George W Library

Our final stop on our Dallas trip was at the George W. Bush Presidential Library on the campus of Southern Methodist University. The visit was delightful with history of 9/11 and events that followed. One of the special features is an exact replica of the Oval Office. Although to exact scale, the room seemed smaller than the images in my mind. We had a tour guide to tell us all about the features of the desk, the rug, and other history.

There were many other displays of interest, but I was most fascinated by the area containing the artist renditions of various military veterans as presented in President Bush's Portraits of Courage

This mural was an amazing collection of military heroes. 

We could have spent a great deal more time in Dallas, for sure, but we certainly enjoyed our two days there. Thanks for sharing our journey!
