There was a quartz outcrop on the top of the hill.
Doris made the climb up to the top to find me.
There were no cactus flowers up here, but these were everywhere.
The day before we returned home, we toured the Longhorn Caverns
(about 6 miles from the park). It was an enjoyable 90 minute "stroll"
through a cave formed by an old underground river. This room was illuminated with
colored lights to highlight the different minerals.
The cave was closed for the morning to make room for a large
school group from Leander Middle School. We elected to join one of the groups rather
than return later, and we were glad we did. The kids asked good questions, and the
guide did more teaching than on regular tours.
