The first S24O of the fall season is in the books. My favorite site was already taken, so I had to select an alternative. Way down there, in the lower, thicker timber, was the camp site under the big pecan tree. It was quite a satisfying outing.
I’ll let the photos tell the story…
About half-way there, a railroad crosses wide open pasture land.
A welcome site on a perfect day.

The last of the sun for the day.
Hike over, returning to camp.
A small fire, and the final glow of the western sky behind the trees.
A warm fire keeps the night’s chilly air back until I crawl into the sleeping bag.
Prehike southeast sky.
Cotton ball cloud reflections.

Dry, rocky, forest stream.
Walking the bike path.
Delightful color and texture.
Morning camp, still sloppy.
