Bastrop State Park

This Sunday's hike was at Bastrop State Park. We covered 8.5 miles of trail in three hours. I didn't bring my camera this time but wish I had since there were all kinds of fungus growing on the forest floor, each beautiful in it's own way.

Nothing much else to report other than I never really connected with nature on this walk. You'd think in 8 miles of walking I'd have plenty of time to do so, but we did it too quick. I was on a time crunch and had to be back in time for a movie, which turned out not so great...we went and saw Spiderman 3 and I was a bit disappointed in it. The special effects were good, but I slept through several parts with dialog and I never fall asleep in movies. Truth be told, I would have rather stayed on the trail longer.

Maybe I'll get more of what I need next time...and I'll try not to forget the camera.

Haven't seen Spiderman 2, don't intend on seeing 3 either.

I will try and get out this weekend and do some bushwalking and photography.

I hope you get to do that. I'd love to see some nature photography from your area. :)

Where do you think you would go exactly?

We are going to a house warming Saturday which is "out in the sticks" t use a colloquialism.

I will try and take some shots of that area.

Awesome, I can't wait to see the pics. :)

Heh, funny how I have you on a picture taking mission. I'm so demanding I know. When I'm hiking with Thomas and I forget my camera I bug him to take pics of stuff I would have.
