One thing I love, is exploring Texas. So, I packed my bag, put on my rain cap and headed out. My plan was to visit the Gorman Falls at Colorado Bend State Park tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/colorado-bend and maybe stay the night at a local Airbnb . However, I only arrived to be notified it was closed for a marathon. (Note to self, look at the dates!)
But I did have a glimpse of what I will be seeing on my return. When you first arrive, you have to cross a small creek but from the looks of it, if it rains hard you are stuck on the other side. So, it is good to probably travel in a higher vehicle. As I went up the winding road there were livestock grazing in the grass (A word of caution, they will come up to your vehicle.) and the road was narrow. So, keep your eyes on the road and watch oncoming vehicles. There is a historical marker on the road leading to the park describing something being named after the first white male born in that city. That wasn't too interesting but what was, were the ostriches across the street. Actually, they were kind of creepy because they kept following me.
Anyhow, I am back to where I started - on the road again. I was in a dilemma. Do I drive to Austin, stay at the nearest hotel or go home? I really wanted to find a spot to read my bible and spend some one on one time with God but I couldn’t find a non-muddy spot. So, I decided to take an alternate route and head home. God knows my heart and He took me home through the back country roads, where the scenery was so refreshing and calm. I crossed creek after creek, field after field and open land for miles.
I went through Lampasas, Georgetown, Elgin, Giddings, Brenham and then home. My battery was dieing and my phone wasn’t charging but it was all for a master plan. This allowed no distractions and the one on one time with Poppa God that I so desperately desired. The road trip was worth the time spent alone with poppa God. Looks like I have another mini trip coming up.
