I HIKED FOR PARK DAY!!!... Brilliant idea by the awesome Gizmo as Co-Host of Park Day and Finn, Blogville's Director of Parks! Can't wait to read all the blogs today!!!
Last Saturday my son and my co-pilot Max, decided to drive about 2-1/2 hours away from Houston, Texas to see McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, Texas. We began our trip as some of you know by stopping at Rosemary's Vineyard and Winery in La Grange, Texas...yum, good stuff! Then it was off to see the 726 acre park that opened in 1976 after 638 acres were donated by Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Smith and Miss Annie M. Smith who were the grandchildren of James Wood Smith had previously bought the land and homestead from Thomas F. McKinney who was one of Austin, Texas's very first settlers who eventually became famous for the race horses he bred. The land used to be covered by sea but was broken by a volcano called Pilot Knob...I had to look it up because it does look rather odd, like Mars or something looking at some of the formations.
|Have to allow my big brother some privacy, but here are all the pretty wildflowers at the park|
|I do look rather fetching in the whole Mother Nature gig if I do say so myself!|
