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.
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.
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.
