Dude, I am not stupid! All leaves change colors. Some leaves might turn brown, red, or yellow.

Who cares if leaves change colors? If I had a ton of money and didnt have to work Id live in the Florida Keys where the palm trees stay green all year long.

Treat yourself one year and go look at some real fall color up in the Ozarks. That's not too far from Dallas, easy drive up there. As beautiful as the leaves are up in the Missouri Ozarks in October, the Arkansas Ozarks are probably even more spectacular.
I'm not attempting to compare Dallas' fall foliage to the Ozarks. lol

You said Dallas didn't have fall colors. In the photo I posted, there are colors and they are classic for fall in this area.

The Ozarks are beautiful, I've been fortunate enough to travel through them in Arkansas and Missouri. The fall foliage there is somewhat less stunning than that of the Blue Ridge Mountains in my native Virginia though. I highly recommend a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway in mid-October.

I'm very familier with "real" fall color, thank you.

The Army Corp of Engineers cleared the tollroad, but then after Katrina, they did another test and said the levees needed repair before the road could be built. It has been a bureaucratic mess.

Dallas raised the funds for building the park and the road in a series of bonds that were sold in the late nineties. Other funds for the road are supposed to come from the NTTA (North Texas Tollroad Authority).
