Every year I try to hike on the first day of the year. This year it was extremely cold in Needville, Texas at Brazos Bend State Park. The hike started out at 32 degrees with a windchill somewhere between 15-20 degrees Fahrenheit. Survival was dependent on three layers for the legs, four layers for the upper body, and wool socks and insulated hiking boots. As the walk progressed throughout the three-hour hike I saw much wildlife and beautiful scenery. The wind blowing through the trees passing upon my face was like a freezer door open. And you know what? It was fantastic! Here are a few photos. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

I love the great outdoors! Lately, I have been checking out travel trailers. I love innovation, technology, low-profile, versatility, and light-weight trailers. These three companies fit all of those factors. If you love travel and the off-road vibe, I am sure you will love these sites too.

State parks are the best value and some of the most beautiful places a person can visit. Here is another favorite of mine. This park is named Inks Lake State Park in Burnet, Texas.  You can read about it here.  http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/inks-lake

It has some great animal viewing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing, boating, fishing, tubing, photography opportunities, or whatever your mind can imagine.

Here are a few photos I took inside the park. I hope they inspire you to visit.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my work.

One of my favorite places in the World is the wilderness. There is so much to do,  see, touch, hear, smell, and sometimes taste  for those who want to open their eyes and look.
