November Road Trip Day 2 Garner, Lost Maples & Hill Country

I ended up going to Garner twice. It was the first stop of the day and it was pretty rainy. I decided to go to Lost Maples thinking that I could dodge the rain clouds. It pretty much worked. They are close enough that I was able to go to Lost Maples and back and still hop into Hill country for a mile hike. This pics are from the second visit where I walked along the Frio River. Probably a better plan that the first one 🙂 … More November Road Trip Day 2 Garner, Lost Maples & Hill Country

September Road Trip #1 Day 2 Copper Breaks & Lake Arrowhead Bonus Local Park – Cedar Hill

The first hike of the day a started rather mundane. The “short” loop was a widely mown path on the prairie and then things got interesting. As it usually seems to happen when I embark on a one path only to find myself on another. … More September Road Trip #1 Day 2 Copper Breaks & Lake Arrowhead Bonus Local Park – Cedar Hill

November Road Trip Day 3 Guadalupe River

The original plan was to also see Government Canyon, but it is only open Fri-Mon and my patience for hanging out for a day left as I sat in the rain driven accident the night before. Since it was Thursday I said let’s go to Guadalupe River and see how I feel about hanging out after that. I had not spent much time in the area, there were things to do… … More November Road Trip Day 3 Guadalupe River
