We started out at Kerrville-Schreiner Park with Tootsie, Marion and the Hearn kids (and lots of deer).

Kim and Larry stayed in a B&B in Hunt.

Inks Lake

We started out on the lake, but a large bull dog next door was just too much for us.  IMG_9305.jpg (16849 bytes)
IMG_9310.jpg (21102 bytes) We hooked up the next morning and moved "inland" to a small, secluded loop.  Our only neighbors here were cactus and deer!

The boy went on three, but the girl went on 4!! IMG_9356.jpg (27389 bytes)
IMG_9348.jpg (26396 bytes) There was a quartz outcrop on the top of the hill.
Doris made the climb up to the top to find me. IMG_9341.jpg (22785 bytes)
IMG_9336.jpg (19849 bytes) 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. cave-lights.jpg (20459 bytes)
CRW_9370.jpg (17677 bytes) 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.
