Stephen F. Austin State Park

I came to Stephen F. Austin State Park for a night of camping and to meet friends in Katy to eat and dance on the next night. I ate in Sealy on Friday night at the suggestion of one of the locals. The trails were nice and I am getting back to being able to walk some of them. There was a snake that darted out on the trail that about gave me a heart attack. Since school is back in session, it was pretty quiet in the park. A few leaves are beginning to change color. I love all the Spanish Moss on the trees. It seems to favor the Cedar Elms. It was only 30 minutes to Texas Roadhouse and Mo's Place. Kenny Orts is one of my favorites.
