Ahhh…Back in the Texas Hill country…Trails through the cedars that cool you off on a hot day.. wide open ancient two tracks for hiking..and flowers that either stick to you or have spines! Juniper berries and limestone that looks like snow.

 

 

wonderful section of trail that is so nice and cool in the shade
