The trail is not very long.. perhaps a mile, maybe a little more.. The main trail lead to a few other possible trails to walk. There were some remaining remnants of the park's former existence left behind. An old swing set, a couple of fire places and several wooden and old barb wire fences.
The river was beautiful!! It had this lovely greenish color. Kinda like a medium to dark jade. It reminded me of my friend's eyes. The same exact coloring. I spent a bit of time just watching the water flow by as the sun came close to setting.. I didn't want to leave, but I knew that it was a park with hours of operation.. While following the trail along the river I came across the largest group of vultures that I have ever seen!! all sitting together in the bare trees making a loud ruckus with their wings.
I finally made it back to my car and began to drive away into the Texan sunset when I came to the sudden realization that I might me locked in. someone had closed the gate! OH NO!!! I got out of my car to check and kept my fingers crossed that the lock was not really locked! I mean the sun is still partially up! Seriously!!! Luckily the chain was not actually locked.
As I left to meet my father at the truckstop I noticed several abandoned and graffitied houses along the highway.. Normally I lean toward rural and isolated houses for my photograph series. I'm thinking that these somewhat urban, though not completely, buildings might be worth returning to to photograph..
