Our family like to go camping & hiking, and in Texas, Spring Break is one of the best times to do it. Last year we went to Hill Country, and this year we went to the Panhandle. But that’s not it. This year our son’s buddy came along with us and he had never done hiking before. Interesting, huh?
Just 18 miles north of Fredericksburg, there raised a massive pink granite dome called Enchanted Rock that said has drawn people for thousands of years. After several visits to Fredericksburg, we finally made it there last year during spring break.
Last Spring Break we went camping and hiking around Hill Country area. Since the only campsite left at the state parks we wanted to visit were primitive ones, we chose to stay at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in Fredericksburg instead. (Confession: I like camping but I have to stay on the site that has water, and site with electricity is a plus.)
It was less than a week when we decided to go camping and hiking to Hill Country for spring break last year. We checked the campsites at the state parks we wanted to visit and of course they already fully booked. But didn’t mean we had to cancel the trip. We knew a place that always had a space and hot showers for just $10 nightly located not too far from downtown Fredericksburg; a place called Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.
Don’t get confused with the name. It’s not in Colorado. It’s in Bend, Texas, southeast of San Saba and west of Lampasas. I first heard about Colorado Bend from a lady at the store where I volunteered every Monday. She told me about hiking to this beautiful waterfalls and kayaking on the river, the Colorado river. I went online and told my husband that we should check this park out.
