Lost Maples - Colors

Well . . . another tough week in the life of Oscar the Smiley Dog . . . such perfect weather and so many beautiful Texas State Parks to visit . . . I told Oscar he had to narrow it down to one and he selected Lost Maples State Natural Area so he could see the fall colors in the trees (his favorite thing!)

After selecting a nice spot, Oscar allowed me to set up the trailer and here's a photo he took when all was in place.

During the next morning's walk, Oscar was enthralled with the classic Airstream Safari parked across the meadow

The morning continued with a little kicked back coffee and reading a good book, "Three Cups of Tea," by Greg Mortenson.

After a bit of readin' & relaxin' we took off to hike and see the fall colors . . . here's a sampling.

That evening, by the campfire, we talked about the nice display of colors and began planning our next trip.
