Another roam of the country around here was fun today. The most distant location the Team made it to was Pedernales Falls State Park. There were old memories of family times lingering in the woods and on the trails but they were good memories. Mostly it was just to see the falls with some water running over them again. Last summer they were barely dampening the rocks. These are actually just a slide but are still fun to mess around upon.
The trail to the overlook is only about one eighth of a mile in cooler weather like today. In the hot weather of summer the trail seems like five miles downhill and six miles back up the trail on the white rock path.
At my favorite overlook here is your view from way above the river.
There are three trails down to the river and 99.99% of the folks take the steep hard two trails to get to the bottom.
Notice the very turbulent water at the left of the picture. That is dangerous. The folks are down at the final pond before the river continues its course through the rest of the park.
The trail down that is my preference winds through the woods and is much longer but easier walking than the other two trails through the rocks on the cliff. Here is a portion of my preferred trail.
The area is in the last days of the wildflower out burst, but there was one hardy flower just posing for a picture.
There was even a stop at Fredericksburg for a little golf chipping practice.
Taking pictures of the Texas Hill Country and flowers is a nice way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
