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.
