#hike11 - Cooper Lake State Park

Date: March 18, 2017 Time: 5 pm

Place: Cooper Lake State Park – South Sulphur Unit

Distance: 4.9 miles

Hike 11 was a repeat so I could share this beautiful place with my better half.  The weather was not cooperating with my plans, so Daingerfield will have to be moved to another weekend.  We hiked the Coyote Run trail again and enjoyed the sun setting through the trees.  The weather was warm, humid and partly cloudy.  The bugs were out in full force, and so were the noisy families.  It was less peaceful, but we eventually hiked far enough ahead to enjoy the birds and armadillos.

The white blossoms were dying, but more purple flowers opened since last week.  There were a ton of new yellow flowers, but my camera ate the photos.  Also, these big green plants were fresh this week.  All in all, a lovely trip.
