Winter RV trip

January 10, 2022 we departed for an area of Texas that was new to both Gail and myself for 2 weeks, Garner State Park, Kickapoo Cavern State Park, Seminole Canyon State Park, and the small town of Uvalde, Texas. The crisp mid-40’s provided refreshing morning walks with Bella and good opportunities for sunrise photographs and sightings of deer and several species of birds.

Our first stop was Garner State Park, arriving a day earlier than the park opened so we spent our first night camped out at the park entrance. We thoroughly enjoyed this treasure located west of San Antonio. The park trails were great and we saw deer and may species of birds, and the Dam on the Frio River was stocked with fresh rainbow trout the first morning of the park opening.

Kickapoo Cavern State Park is 6,368 acres, straddling the Kinney and Edwards county line in Texas, located 22 miles north of Brackettville. Known for its deep and dry cavern that can only be accessed with a guided tour by park rangers and volunteers. There is also a bird blind with a small water feature that attracts my species of birds.
