Brazos Bend State Park…

brazos-state-park-2014

We have had a LONG hot summer! It was time to get out of the house and enjoy this gorgeous fall weather!!

Tarzan said, “I want to go for a hike!”

“Oh, boy…muttered Jane!” Jane really isn’t into a lot of foot pedaling. Smile…

Tarzan said, “Let’s take Bossy Boy with us, he could use some exercise too.”

We jumped into the car and Jane says to Bossy Boy, “Are you excited to get to go to Brazos Bend State Park?

This is the look I get on his face after I asked this question. I will let you be the judge of his answer.

When we take these little adventurous day trips, these two are always way ahead of me, for I am stopping every two seconds taking pictures.

I look up and see they are already on the fishing pier and intently looking over the rail.

What are they so intently looking at, I wonder?

Oh, MY!!!! No wonder Tarzan has Bossy Boy in a tight grip! Yikes!!

This alligator was only inches from them.

Bossy Boy was telling Daddy, “Let me at him, I can take him on!”

Calm down…you can’t get in there with him, silly boy!

I have to say, this place was delightful.

Hiking, Biking and Wildlife Viewing! There are almost 25 miles of hiking and biking trails, including an 8 ยญmile equestrian trail system.

As you can see from the images, our trees don’t turn the vibrant colors of the northern states…sigh.

BUT, we get these beautiful golden rod flowers blooming everywhere to ring in the fall season.

Jane says, “Tarzan, can you pick me up tomorrow? I need to sit here for a while.”

I hope you are enjoying your fall weather, wherever that may be.
