“Flip a Coin” Road Trip (and Roll the Dice)

With all the heavy rains the last couple weeks here in Deep East Texas, we decided hiking this weekend, was probably not a great idea. We couldn’t think of any trails that would be accessible and not a muddy mucky mess! So we decided to go for a drive!

Waterfall Rock

I had been looking back over some of my older blogs lately and came across “Go Fly a Kite” from a few years back… This totally inspired me to want to get a kite and get out there in these nice March winds! Of course the day I plan to go the winds were high above the trees and I knew it would be hard to get the kites up high enough so I opted just to go on a hike. I had to get out of this house and out in a bit before I totally go mad!
Boykin Springs is our “go to” park for hiking when we don’t have all day to drive then hike. We generally hike the lake trail (which doesn’t even show up on the map) but I wanted a bit of a change so we headed down the Sawmill Hiking Trail. The trail used to go all the way to Bouton Lake but private land now blocks the way. I suppose that doesn’t matter today we wont be going that far.

Geocaching The Big Thicket

Geocaching the Big Thicket

February 26, 2012

We wanted to go geocaching and Village Creek SP has several caches in it. We also love hiking the Sundew Trail and the Kirby Nature Trail and I wanted to put geocaches in the parks. We decided to make a day of it!

First stop was a park we like in Woodville. We walked around a bit before finding a place to hid a cache. While wandering, we noticed some Leaf Cutter Ants. These guys always make me think of:
Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
