Cibolo Creek

I’m trying to finish going through some photos from Memorial Day weekend when we went to the Texas Hill Country. The first part of the weekend happened to be a little rainy. One of those days we stopped by Cibolo Creek a place we’d been to before three years ago when we did a Texas road trip, camping at various state parks from the Panhandle to the Texas coast. The nature center had changed a bit since we’d visited, a new building for nature education was built and the road entrance was improved considerably.

While the creek itself was flowing rather lazily at the time we went, there was evidence of the recent rains with vegetation still flopped over from the rush of the water.

Someone had been working hard to build a fort. Pretty cool!

The cypress lining this creek are rather large, giant even.

Chris had to do a little dance to get his shoes back on, which I thought was funny enough to photograph.

A view of one of the trails; we didn’t explore much of the area because we were trying to get over to Kerrville to visit the native plant nursery there before they closed.

The nature center buildings.

The native plantings around the nature center were interesting and we found this very strange Mexican hat with four, well, I’m not sure of their technical terms, central disks. I wonder what caused this mutation? Or is it something else entirely?

I really love this area and would love to explore more than the little bit we did down by the creek, maybe even walk the creek another time.
