Hike

Buscher State Park. Outside Smithville, Texas. A cloudy day in April, 2015.


A 3.5 mile hike. With a stylin' backpack.


The bridge was a great photo op.


Some of the signs were a little confusing.


Some seemed unnecessary. 


Saw a little wildlife. Water moccasin on the log.


A selfie to mark our finish.

    1. We'd anticipated rain, but it never really came. Just a nice overcast sky.

  7. How fun! Do people use those trails for biking or snowmobiling? That's the only reason I could see for that slow sign. And the other ones? Well, I'm glad you're back because I'm pretty sure I'd still be wandering in circles.

  8. Looks like you had a great walk. My favorite sign right now is one that warns you of thin ice. :-)

  11. I like taking walks through the woods. I have a picture or two where I'm looking upward to capture the trees against the sky. Sometimes I got lucky to get a sun star pattern in the frame. Have a fototastic day, Deb!

    Would love to have you join my #WW linky party here!

  12. Looks like a great day out - those signs are v funny. Who needs a warning about a sharp turn on a gentle hiking path, they must have thought they were on Everest :)

  18. What a lovely area to take a walk in! Love that first photo of the treetops.

  19. Eek! A water moccasin! I am not sure if I could hike any longer knowing deadly snakes were afoot. I live in a part of the country where there are no poisonous snakes (rattlers on the east side of the state but not the western side where we live), so I am very snake shy.

  21. I like that you included pictures of you and your companion and of the signs and bridge. Makes me feel like I was right there with you!

  22. Hiking is one of my most favorite things! I would be scared to death to see a water moccasin tho. We only have to deal with rattlesnakes out here. LOL

  23. Looks like lots of fun! Mum and I went for a walk today as well - starting raining though and we got soaked. Such fun!

  24. I should hike (bush walk) more often, I do it so rarely, but have always loved it. I really like your first picture. Arrow signs are so often confusing.
