Inks Lake State Park, Texas

This past weekend was the MS 150 from Houston to Austin. In years past I might have gotten involved. But I have a kind of “been there, done that” attitude toward the MS 150. It’s really a great ride, but it’s also gotten huge and the logistics involved are always a lot to work out. Oh, and then there’s raising the money. Anyway, been there, done that. Maybe I’ll do it again in the future some time.

Instead, my parents were in town through the weekend. Consequently, not much bicycling got done. Just a little bit on Saturday. On Sunday and Monday, the weather wouldn’t cooperate and I only managed a short and what turned out to be, a very wet ride.

We did manage to make it out to Inks Lake over the weekend though. Given my recent flower picture posts, I couldn’t help including yet another one of flowers on display in the park. Inks Lake is a pretty small lake in the Highland Lakes chain. The park is a great little spot for a picnic or camping. For hiking, there’s not much there. They do have at least one nice trail that leads up into some craggy rocks and overlooks a little creek. You can see a couple more pics here.
