lost maples, article, football

every fall my wife she and i and my rainwater brother and his wife
and my historian brother and his wife go to the lost maples area for
the weekend

we rent a cabin on the frio river and enjoy the weekend together
enjoying the rustic environment
no cell phone we have works there
had some withdrawals but made it ok

my wife she and i go up early on friday and do a lengthy walk at
the lost maples state park
(see the lost maples website)
there are very few people there when we get there so we usually
have the trails to ourselves
(on the weekends in november they actually have traffic jams at
the park entry)

its so nice to be outside walking on the isolated trails up the hills of
the canyon where the maple trees grow
up to the plateau on the top of the canyon walls and look down
over the trees and lake and river

the funniest part of the trip was when my wife she backed into
a cactus (wont tell you what she was doing-it was isolated up there)
and had to have cactus spines removed from that area
sorry dont have a picture of that
too bad we were only half way on our hike

the maple trees found there are like the ones found in new england
this years colors were better than what was expected because of
the drought
here are pictures from past visits there

we also had lunch saturday at the the laurel tree
a restaurant near utopia texas that is in the middle of
the atmosphere and food was fantastic
there are grounds around the restaurant that has herb and
vegetable gardens that are used in the meals
5***** recommendation

The Laurel Tree

overall it was a great weekend with bros and in a slow paced
environment with great scenery
will do it again next year

jr thanks for the walking stick

the article on the interview with the organicgreendoctor was not
published this weekend
whenever it is published will post the date on this blog

well we did manage to squeeze in some games on saturday evening
helped with the withdrawals
horns didnt look good-didnt help that their first 3 running backs
were out with injuries
hogs got it done-what if they beat lsu
those cowboys why cant they play like that all the time
they have found themselves a new running back for sure

one of my favorite players to watch this year is robert griffin
the qb at baylor
hes called rg3
recruited by texas to be an athlete
he said nope i want to play qb so he went to baylor
bet texas wishes he had gone to their school now
they could use him

he also is a junior and is working on his masters
if he doesnt go pro next year he will be starting law school
his senior year
my advice is go pro
he is a running quarterback and a true pocket passer
he should do well in the pros
think vince young talent who can play the quarterback position
like it should be played

its nice to see a player like this in college football
