Washington-on-the-Brazos

After a perfect A.T. trailiversary in Austin, my friends and I headed home. We made a couple of pit stops on the way back to Houston including the trails at Washington-on-the-Brazos. The Wildflower Loop was temporarily closed because of erosion but the other trails were open and there were a few patches of bluebonnets. The huisache were in full bloom and smelled amazing! We got to the farm just after they closed so most of the animals were put away but we did get to see the cutest little piglets that have ever existed. The park was a little out of our way but definitely worth it.

Wildflower hunting is all about the timing. I had much better luck in 2014.
