Camping at Brazos Bend State Park


Last weekend we made it out for our last camping trip of the season. It was borderline too hot and humid anyway, but we toughed it out. There was a chance of rain but nothing appeared until our drive home, thankfully. I would definitely like to visit this state park a few more times with Forest as he grows up. There’s a lot to do at the park with a ton of trails, a small nature center, plus the George Observatory. A lot of the trails were closed this weekend due to recent rains and flooding over the trails, but we made do with more of the front country trails instead. Our campsite was also much better and less open than it was at the Bastrop State Park site a few weeks ago. There were even lightning bugs just inside the woods beside our site once evening set in.

Below are the photos we took plus two videos. The first video was shot on an old point and shoot we took on the AT because we couldn’t find our ‘good’ point and shoot, but I really liked using that camera again. For a point and shoot it does really good macros, usually. The second video was shot with the Go Pro on timelapse. Chris put together the three timelapse videos we shot using the Go Pro software and I tried adding music via Windows Movie Maker but kept having issues with that so I added music via YouTube’s editor. That’s a bit clunky so I didn’t get to do the fade out I wanted and had to add in an extra window to get the music to sync at the end…oh well, it works!

These videos have been fun to make that they are inspiring me to go back to our Appalachian Trail and Florida Trail videos and merge them together into a movie.
