Hiking on a Sunday Afternoon

We spent our Sunday afternoon checking out the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge.  There are over 20 miles of nature trails spread throughout the park, which is nestled along Lake Worth.  We took the Canyon Rim trail, a 3.25 mile one way trail that winds along overlooking Lake Worth.  It was suprisingly not flat, slightly (very slightly) deflating Andy’s argument that Fort Worth and all of Texas is hopelessly flat.

North Texas is wonderfully green after a particularly wet March, as you can see from Laura’s climb up the steepest part of the trail.  She’s halfway there!

At the top of the trail, there were two old CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) buildings.  This next one was my favorite.

It sits overlooking Lake Worth.  There was a fellow hiker enjoying the view and I didn’t want to disturb her or there would have included a view of the lake.

Finally, I wasn’t completely unproductive creatively this weekend.  I finally wrote down the instructions for my Bolivar headband, snapping a few self-portraits while on the hike.  Here’s a sneak peak.
