Spring is here in Texas.  Our beautiful wildflowers are popping up in fields.  You can see some gorgeous fields along the highways and by ways . . . 

Our state flower is the Blue Bonnet.  They appear along our highways in huge fields.  The bluebonnet fields are a great photo opportunity!
                     Watch out for slithery critters!

The Alligator Gar is an interesting fish found in some of the rivers in Texas.  Click on the source for more info.  about fishing for
Alligator Gar.


Our parks are a great place for cyclist enthusiasts!  
Big Bend National Park is a favorite place for races and events. 

Last spring we had an unusual amount of rain.  Pretty much everything was underwater.  
Thanks to funding help, Bastrop State Park is recovering from the devastating fires.
The Texas parks offer some great places for walks and hikes.
