Out and About

Quiz: Any guess as to what this is a picture of?

We drove out to Pedernales Nature Park in Johnson City, Longhorn Cavern State Park and Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery.

Pedernales Nature Park is a very small LCRA Park that used to be an RV park. The roads and RV pads are still there. The Pedernales River runs along the back of the park and is a good place for ducks and other birds.

American Kestral

This might look like a leaf but is actually an American Snout!


Mute Swan

Our next stop was Longhorn Cavern State Park.

There is a pretty nice 1 mile loop trail that we walked. The drought is very obvious along the path.

Ash Juniper (commonly called Cedar)

Live Oak

There are some wonderful CCC buildings in the Park.

Remember the quiz question? It was taken here at the Observation Tower:

Spiral Staircase - from the top looking down!

Almost to the top!

After Longhorn Cavern State Park we drove 6 miles down the road to Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery.

Stay tuned for Inks Dam pictures.
