It was a beautiful 65 mile drive on hilly ranch roads from Fredercksburg to South Llano River State Park, with wildflowers everywhere. We had been told by several people that we would love this park, and they were right. Most of the sites are huge and some are very private. We opted for a more open site hoping to see some of the wildlife.
I put out a regular bird feeder and a hummingbird feeder, and within an hour the hummingbirds arrived. There are several bird blinds, one right behind our site that is always busy. There are miles of hiking trails in the park and the adjoining Walter Buck Wildlife Management Area. We’ve had a couple deer walk through our site, but have yet to see the wild turkeys which the park is known for. In fact they have a huge area closed to the public except between 10 and 3 each day which is a turkey roost area.
We’ve hiked a few trails so far, and walked up to the scenic overlook. Here are some pictures from our walks.

Behind our site. It will be even prettier here in a few more weeks when all the leaves come out on the trees.

We’re here until Sunday for sure. It is so peaceful we may just hang out a bit longer. With the Wilson amplifier we actually have a good internet connection. And Quincy is doing a little better with his leash and collar, but it’s hard to teach an old cat new tricks.
