Into the Green




Just camped at Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park in Burnet and lucky that we got to choose the campsite we wanted. We chose one that had towering trees around us and had a trail that lead directly to a field of bluebonnets.

The campsite was beautiful and eerie at the same time. One huge tree got partially uprooted and is growing sideways. From afar, it looked like a giant gnarly hand grabbing our tent. It wasn’t scary, just fascinating. Nothing and no one of our world or another (if it exists) bothered us. It’s just so restful to go into the green and be surrounded by the beauty of nature.

It took us about two hours to get to the park from Austin and and it was worthwhile. We did a lot of hiking (until our feet hurt) and some birding. The most amazing sight was the sea of bluebonnets as far as the eyes can see and we also spied some pelicans migrating north. Those photos will be on my next post, so don’t forget to come by next week. 🙂

  1. The Bluebonnets are just spectacular. And cooking at the camp means the food tastes oh so much better. Those hotdogs were great after a long day’s hike. Great pics as always.

Thanks for coming by today and for your kind words. I will visit you as soon as I can. Have a fantastic day and don't forget to smile. ~ Shey
