Texas Hill Country - steve-coyle

May Showers

Rainy skies have led to flower laiden trails in the upper parts of Doeskin Ranch at Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Preserve. It was really nice to walk down the still muddy trail lined with Indian Paintbrush as thunder rolled overhead last weekend. If you get a chance to go out there for a hike I recommend wearing pants though and taking plenty of mosquito repellant. The vegetation is all grown up and some parts of the trails in the lower part of the preserve are almost overgrown. The rain has been a delight and the plants are showing off their appreciation.
