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 find it so relaxing to take photos of wildlife and visit them out in their home far away from the city. I also enjoy the flowers and other things like moss and bryozoans floating in water. Huntsville State Park has been a favorite place of mine for many years. Here are a few photos I shot recently in the park. I hope you find them inspirational and decide to do your own exploring and photography.

I took these photos at Goliad State Park in Goliad, Texas. This is site of the Goliad Massacre. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goliad_massacre, and the Battle Of Goliad http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Goliad

Always learn and remember history to avoid a repeat.

If you are in Texas, or visiting Texas, I highly recommend Goliad State Park http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/goliad
