The Magestic and Amazing Frio River | Nature at it’s finest

I just wanted to share a couple of beautiful shots I got. This photo is one of my favorites because I know this place so well. I have been visiting this river and this spot for the past 24 years of my life. We try to make at least one family trip every Summer and my best friend and I try to make a “girls” trip as well.
This is the Frio River in Concan, Tx

Many people may know the Frio by one of George Strait’s songs called
“All my exes live in Texas”

or
they most likely know it from Garner State Park.
We always stay right down stream from Garner at Magers River Camp.
Mrs. Magers has long since passed away and her kids have taken over the property, split it in half and made their own personal changes to the place, as people tend to do when that happens.
None the less, we still love to go and make new memories and we will always have our older memories and pictures like these to look back on.
If you ever get the opportunity to make it to Texas, then I hope you get to checkout the Frio River.
It is so beautiful and majestic. Full of wild animals, sometimes wild turkeys and deer make their way through the river banks. You can sit on the edge of the water or in a kayak and fish for little perch, which are abundant and may nibble on your toes a little. There is hiking and 4 hour kayak trips, which I also have embarked on a couple of times. I love nature and the great outdoors. I love kayaking and fishing, campfires and cookouts. I love crossing the river at night by the damn and going over to the Garner State Park side for the Summer dances.  The Frio River area has all of this and more. The next time you are looking for a fun new place to visit or a cool place to take the kids on a family vacation, then I hope you remember this post and you give it a shot. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
This next photo was taken many years ago while on a road trip in the northwest part of the country. It was so long ago that I can’t remember for sure the exact location but I’m almost positive that it was Washington state. A beautiful state with gorgeous mountains and rolling hills of amber. I love traveling to the northwestern part of America.
It reminds me just how small I am in this big old world.
 
Dream on Dreamers
Blessings to all
