Garner State Park

Garner State Park Trees

Amanda and I went camping with her parents at Garner State Park. This park was pretty nice. I think we were at the older part, but in the last few years has grown quite a bit. Even so, it still fills up quickly and reservations must be made a ways in advance. The river was very fun to play in and wasn’t even cold.

Pedernales Falls State ParkI went to Pedernales Falls State Park with Amanda and her family back in March. It was tons of fun. The river is pretty neat, it’s rocky, clear, and cool. The falls were just barely flowing after such a dry year. The weather turned out to be pretty nice. We had expected rain, but luckily it never came.

While staying at the RV Park in Lajitas, TX we drove down the scenic Highway 170 a couple times. After seeing several horses on the Mexican side of the border, we crested one of the larger mountain passes on the road and started down to this view on the shoulder.

Mexico is to the left.

The view was reminiscent of the Headwaters of the Rio Grande I stopped at along a highway in Colorado, seen below.
