Justin and I woke up too late this morning to make our planned visit to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, so we headed to Guadalupe River State Park instead. We arrived armed with Justin's usual assortment of traditional camera gear, as well as our newest addition--a Kodak DC265 digital camera. Although we had already fed one set of batteries through the camera shooting images around home, we were anxious to take it to a park. Having started a new job in early March and found my outdoors time diminish as a result, I was especially looking forward to the excursion.
Although summer is clearly arriving here in South Texas, the weather this morning was quite pleasant. In fact, we were slightly cold as we made the drive to the park gate! Having seen this particular park in all its seasons, we noted it is once again wearing its lush green cloak thanks to recent month's rains. And while the wildflowers of spring have waned, they have been replaced by Indian blanket, Texas groundsel (ragwort), and Texas thistle, among others.
