Easter Sunday was beautiful throughout Central Texas, and for my family it gave us a chance to get away on a camping trip with our new camper.  It also gave us a chance to do something we haven't done in three or four years;  Take a family hike.It's difficult to get the family to put down their tablets & phones long enough to have a conversation, much less getting two hours to go on a hike. Miller Springs in Belton took us through so many different landscapes I just had to share the pictures with you.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Logan worked up enough courage to peek over the edge of Belton Dam.

  • I've driven over Belton Dam a thousand times, but I've never looked over the side to see this beautiful part of Central Texas.

  • A couple turtles getting some sun atop a tree trunk.  The water is rippling from a few turtles diving underwater after hearing our loud clan coming toward them.

  • Believe it or not, this picture was taken inside a tree looking upward.  I'm glad there weren't eyes staring back at me when I looked at this picture later.  I just held the camera inside the tree and snapped the picture, not knowing if I was about to awaken a colony of bees or bats.

  • Logan plays peek-a-boo through the hollow tree.

  • It's not exactly Niagara or Angel Falls, but it's still a beautiful site in Central Texas.

  • Like father, like son.  Logan and I are ready for the road ahead with walking sticks in hand.
