Bastrop State Park
Five years ago this month, we had a tremendous drought in Texas and there were brush and forest fires in many parts of the state. One of the heaviest hit places was the Bastrop area, including Bastrop State Park. I recall driving to the Gruene 10K in New Braunfels five years ago and having to take a different route to avoid the Bastrop area because of the raging fire. On the way home from the Gruene 10K this year, I drove through Bastrop State Park. The photo is what most of it looks like now.
This evening, I ran 2 miles in the hilly avenues.
