MY FAMILY AND I WERE SPECIAL GUESTS AT LONGHORN CAVERN STATE PARK BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE OUR OWN. Every time I saw pictures of Longhorn Cavern, I felt like I would be walking on the underground river with imaginary water surrounding me when I go there. The cave looks beautifully sculpted, as if flowing smoothly to the mysterious end.
While waiting for my son spending time with his dentist, one thing I liked to do was searching through Texas Monthly Magazine to find places of interests around Texas that worth a visit. Last week, I found Hanna Springs Sculpture Garden in Lampasas. Hmm… We’re going to Longhorn Cavern in Burnet and we would drive through Lampasas on Labor Day. Perfect!
I was struck with the spacious reddish canyon in the horizon as we drove to our campsite. I thought in Texas I could only see a view like that in Palo Duro. Then we saw a herd of bison by the roadside and around the campsite. Wow! We’re not just roaming with the bison at Caprock Canyons State Park, but sleeping with them as well for the next 2 nights. Sweet!
Last weekend we went hiking at Cleburne State Park with our son’s Webelos den. They had to hike for 3 miles, one of the requirements for them to get their Webelos Walkabout Badge. The planned was to hike the Spillway Trail and continued to Limestone Ridge Trail.
When I went online to check out the points of interest and hiking trail at this park, it is said that Bull Canyon Trail – Short Loop is ideal for visitors with limited time to explore the park. Since we were spending a night there, I added another trail, Juniper Ridge Nature Trail, to our list. Somehow the description about this trail interests me more and I know my son and his friend would enjoy it, too.
