    Hale Hollow Creek branches off the Sabinal River near Campsite A and heads west through the northern portion of the park before running into private property. We didn’t walk that far down it, but to kill some time before setting up our tent and waiting on our friends we decided to explore the creek bed a little bit.

    Maidenhair fern line the walls of the creek, some in better shape than others.

    Virginia creeper provided a nice contrast in color along the way.

    Even the maidenhair fern were providing some fall colors throughout the creek.

    We are fairly certain this is an orchid, in particular I think the chatterbox orchid. Maybe this spring we can get out and see them in bloom.

    Some stalactites growing from the sides of the creek walls.

    We stopped when we reached this tree and Chris took a few shots. I sat and lingered, taking in the light coming through the maples.

    Passiflora lutea I believe.

    I love ducking into quiet and seemingly unexplored regions of a park. I’m sure that people have explored this area, but the rest of the general population there that weekend wasn’t there exploring it and that is what mattered to me.

    Some quiet time with nature.

      That acorn photo *may* have brought a tear to my eye. You forget how much you miss something *so* simple. It brought me back to college and collecting and drawing acorns for art class. A time that was definitely no happy, but now I can look back with fondness (and happiness that it worked out…) <3 Thank you for that!

      You’ve got some gorgeous photos here. I liked the all, but the third from the bottom made me gasp. Nice shot.

      “Sigh” peaceful.
