Perdernales Falls State Park, TX

There are a lot of state parks in TX and a lot in this area!  We decided when we went to McKinney SP to buy a $70 annual pass and have already paid for half of it.  If you are going to spend 2 or 3 months in this state, the annual pass is the way to go.

We weren't able to do the 7 1/2 mile trail we had originally chosen due to the Perdernales River being  to high where the trail crossed it, but managed to put in 5 plus miles in the falls area which  was quite lovely.

 This beautiful spot is where we stopped for lunch:

 We took a small trail with a bird watching blind:

not clear but a female Hairy Woodpecker?

 Our first winery in this area.  Stopped on the way home.  Nice wines but high prices and high tasting fee.

    1. Apparently a little more than usual;) We would have liked to have done the longer hike but the ranger said no way, the water was running to swiftly and it is a trail you must cross the water and will get your feet wet.
