Fall is such a beautiful time. Not so hot and not cold yet. And if you happen to live in a place where the trees burst with fall colors, its like living inside a painting. Not so much in Texas! So, one fine morning last November, we went in search of some fall color.
The Lost Maples State Natural Area is situated about 70 miles west of San Antonio. We had a pleasant drive of about 2 hours from our home. On the way, we saw the most glorious tree on the side of the road. We stopped and took pics, of course.
We continued our journey, passing beautiful Texas farm country landscape. We passed quaint old towns like Bandera and Utopia.
The air was definitely cooler and vast areas passed with no soul in sight.
Inside the park, we decided to follow the most common hiking trails.
We saw colorful maple trees and little streams where the Boy played to his heart’s content.
All in all, a day well spent!
