The best outdoor places to go according to Texans

The best outdoor places to go according to Texans

The Rio Grande near La Cuesta in Big Bend Ranch State Park.

Believe, Texas audience are the very best.

I requested for your favored outside places — in honor of the Texas State Parks system’s 100th anniversary — and you stuffed my inbox with tales about condition parks, national parks and a scary car breakdown in West Texas mended with a lowly potato. (I did not involve the total potato tale in my column now due to the fact it did not mention a particular park. The potato element was the winner.)

I picked a number of tales to share for their varied geography and the writers’ tale-telling procedures.

Deep canyons, fault caves and Gulf beach locations

Rebecca Hudson: Palo Duro Canyon State Park — This wonderful canyon was like an out of doors classroom for my little ones as they were lucky to show up at educational institutions in the close by town of Canyon and attended summer time camps at West Texas A&M College in Canyon. (They) took advantage of the character the canyon presented and its history of Indigenous People in america, in unique the Comanche, alongside with the Spanish Conquistadors, the ranching interests of Col. Charles Goodnight and other ranchers in the canyon who sought the grazing and drinking water therein. Their paternal grandfather — operating for the Texas freeway section out of Hereford at the time — served to create the winding roadway down onto the ground of the Canyon in the late 1930s.
