A Glimpse of Fall

Friday evening my husband and I took off for an overnight camping trip. I was hoping when we planned our venture that the timing would be perfect to view some fall colors. South Texas doesn't have a great deal of color in the fall typically, but I was anxious to see if there would be some at Garner State Park.
Lost Maples State Park is notorious for being the best Texas location for fall colors, but from past experience we knew the line to even drive into the park would take hours.
We opted for Garner State Park. We spent a week camping there for vacation in September and fell in love with it. We planned then to return later to hike another trail and see if there would be fall colors.
It was dark by the time we got to our campsite and set up camp. We had breakfast of coffee, scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits while we looked at the various hiking trails on the map. We chose a trail we had not hiked and filled water bottles and headed out.
Before getting to the trail I requested a walk along the river bank for photos first.

I think this one is my favorite of the day: My hunny looking at the water:

Although the colors are not yet plentiful and vibrant they were still beautiful:

We hiked to the White Cave then on to the Foshee Trail and over to the Painted Rock Trail.
