Hill Walking

 

Adventure Location: Falcon Lake State Park Texas

Adventure Date: 2-14-2023



We headed out to walk the rolling and unlevel parts of the beach area and a couple of places where there was a steeper walking place near some trees. A short way into the walk the OFM started to take a picture and the camera replied NO SD CARD. It was still in the computer from writing the blog last night. Way to go lame brain.

We continued the walk and passed the top of the main boat ramp which reminded us of a picture we have been saving for the right moment. Now the right moment is here. This picture was taken from the top of the main boat ramp looking down into the ravines that formed the channel to the ramp from the lake a few years ago. Now the sign seems a bit silly to us. 


From here it is all down hill to the lake area. We meandered several trails that had lots of up and down. After a while the OFM legs started to complain a bit then we started back up the roads to the parking lot. When we got to the top level the OFM legs HAD to rest a bit. We relaxed and checked out the scenery for about five minutes and started back for the Castle. All in all it was only about two miles of walking but all the up walking did make the OFM legs give out a lot quicker than he thought they would. Those moderate elevation changes were more tiring than we thought they would be. So now we now we need more elevation changes in our walking efforts.

Later in the day we did a drive through the county camping area and chose a spot we will try to get when we pull out in the morning. If we get it we should be there at least another week. The price is right at zero dollars a month. This evening was spent visiting with several folks here at the State Park and swapping stories. Hopefully we will be in place and happy by noon tomorrow. It may turn out to be a good place for trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. Looks like you are having a good time. My guess it will probably take some time to get your legs back....not a lot of up and down stuff where you spent quite a while. Right? Well, hang in there. Just glad you're back on the road and going where you please. Hope the move is a good one.
