Things are blooming and growing at the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. I hiked through several different zones on the outside loop trail, and there was much to see and photograph along the way.
On my way back home this evening, I stopped off at the Shin Oak Observation Deck to watch the birds and to enjoy the sunset. This viewpoint is part of the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge, and offers some nice photo opportunities.
Today’s mission was to hike the outside loop at Doeskin Ranch . This hike is located in the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. It involves a short climb up a ridge and then be prepared for sunshine as there is not much tree cover for most of the trail. You will be rewarded with some beautiful Hill Country views!
