Dec 12, 2015 - REI Hike at Pedernales Falls State Park

This morning I took my second hike with REI – this time to Pedernales Falls State Park near Johnson City. We left the downtown REI parking lot around 8:30 and met some other participants who had driven separately to the park. After a briefing by Mary Pritchard we headed out. The other guide, Amber Davis, stayed close to me and was very efficient at helping me make the creek crossings. I really enjoyed our good conversation, too. The Wolf Mountain Trail is about six miles long, but we hiked only about two miles of it. We crossed three...

Feb 27, 2010 - Texas State Parks

With the beautiful Texas Sunshine and warm temperatures, we spent the day traveling to two State Parks. Texas does charge a small fee to visit the parks, but the good part is that you can purchase a pass at one park and use it at another on the same day.

Pedernales Falls State Park, over 5000 acres, and is only about 10 miles from Dripping Springs. Pedernales...

Since it is quite a hike to the river, and I didn't trust the river, we decided to take the hike to Twin Falls overlook instead. It turned out to be a pretty strenuous hike so we got a good workout. While at the park we saw deer,...

Feb 10, 2008 - Pedernales Falls

Another ‘Hill Country’ park in the mold of South Llano. But no turkeys and I didn’t try fishing. We did some walking and biking but we still prefer South Llano. Nothing much to report here. We fed the birds, had a three point buck as a regular visitor to our campsite, J/Kat saw a bobcat, and J/Kat and Jade might have seen a badger. That’s their story, they’re sticking to it, and I believe it. I, (that’s a big capital I) left the camera sitting on the bench at the Pedernales Falls overlook but it was still sitting there when we walked back...
