|Lost Maples State Natural Area|
|Can you spot those 2 tiny water specks in the picture? That's where we ended up camping (after a steep descent!)|

|A great little swimming hole- deep enough to jump off the lower cliffs (no we didn't try).|
|Of course Titus couldn't resist the water.|
Before heading home, we stopped at 2 other parks: Hill Country State Natural Area and Government Canyon State Natural Area. At Hill Country, we experienced their frontier day. There were some restored tractors, a chuck wagon, covered wagon rides, etc. It was pretty hot so we didn't stay long, but it's a great park if you like horses. Government Canyon is definitely a place we need to go back and explore some more someday. Pets aren't allowed in the backcountry, so we were limited in what we could see with Titus.
