Inspiration from Lost Maples

Paul and our British Lab, Phineas
Fall's Reflections

Pond on East Trail at Lost Maples Natural Area

Checking out the Local Foliage!

I'm still thinking about the dazzle of the sun on the canyon's creek and the purple-red haze on the soft, tall grasses along the trails at Lost Maples. There was every shade of autumn there. It was all good. And, it was nature at its best. If you're looking for inspiration, you might consider a day or two at Lost Maples Natural Area near Vanderpool, Texas. It's about an hour and a half's drive northwest from San Antonio. If you go through the small towns of Bandera and Medina along the way, you might also pass by a cowboy walking a buffalo or an apple orchard that stretches into forever. Once you head out of San Antonio and into the Hill Country, the drive won't disappoint you at all. Some of the landscapes are simply breathtaking.

Paul and I went tent camping and hiking at Lost Maples last week with our two dogs, Phineas and Rusty. The weather was so good that we nearly forgot our brutal summer. Cool, dry days and crisp, clear nights that let one see the stars, made me want to pinch myself. It seemed too good to be true! I took the camera with me every time I headed out of the campsite. Inspiration was everywhere I turned. Now, all I need to do is pick, plan, and paint a landscape. I'll let you know later how it goes . . . Happy Trails! ---Cindy
