A little help here.

I have the week off and will be in Austin for a couple of days. I'm thinking of also visiting Lost Maples and/or Garner State Park because they are both places I've heard a lot about and have seen photos of and think I'd like to go. I have a couple of questions for anyone who might know the answers:

1. Is there a point to going to both? I know Lost Maples is more of a fall thing, is there anything to see after the leaves are gone?

2. Can I do both in one day? I'm a nature walk kind of girl, but I usually can't stay anywhere pretty for longer than two hours without a purpose.

3. Is there some other place I should go instead? I'm just looking for some new terrain to explore.

Thanks!

I can't help you with your questions. But I am compelled to exclaim that I want to go camping!!! The weather is so perfect for the waking up in the freezing cold of morning and the loving of the weak-warm early sunlight...

I don't know, but when you get here you can read up on them in 60 Hikes in 60 Miles, a book Amber and I have.

I'm with Pablo-let's go camping but when it's not freezing at night! In response to the inquiry-Garner State Park is tons of fun in the warm summer months because of the absolute perfect temperature of the frio river! See www.friorivertrip.com for info on this summer's big organized outing. (it's my bro's friend who's organizing it, but the more the merrier).
