Bastrop State Park
This weekend, the weather was so gorgeous it was almost surreal. I felt guilty staying indoors. We got our chores done Sunday morning, and headed to Bastrop State Park in the afternoon. The trail map is awesome, and the trails are well-marked. We found a route that was about the right length (almost 3 miles), and took off with Sweetpea to check it out.
It was gorgeous. I used to do field work in this area, so I feel very at home among the pine trees. I miss them.
There were lots of different kinds of mushrooms popping up everywhere, too. These pumpkin-colored ones were my favorite.
I’ve been scoping out other parks on the map for some more day trips. Actually, next week I’m going to Matagorda County for work so I’ll have to check that area for more.
And the good news… I hear more rain is on the way! Love it.
