Pedernales Falls State Park – Sun., Apr. 22

Selma & Johnson City, Texas:
Today we’re off to Costco in Selma, Texas and Camping World. At Camping World Bob found out we did not have to put in a double skylight. He bought some butyl tape to help with the seal between the skylight and the roof. 

When shopping was complete, we returned to the 5er and Bob put in the new skylight. It looks great. Thanks, Bob, for fixing the skylight.

For the first time, I cut Bob’s hair today. I am not a hairdresser. A couple of weeks ago we watched a You Tube video on how to cut hair. Today I actually did it. It looks pretty good.

At 4:30 p.m. we went to Pedernales Falls State Park. What a place. Bob and I love waterfalls. 

Sandhill crane fishing for dinner.


At the top of the trail to the waterfall is a big sign board explaining if the water level starts to rise, leave all your belongings and get to high ground. A flash flood is coming. You have five minutes to get out of the way. No swimming or tubing is allowed in the falls area which is a shame because the swimming hole looks awesome. A sandhill crane was hunting dinner next to the falls.

Bob wanted to go swimming. We drove to the parking lot for the swimming/picnic area and hiked the trail into the canyon. Bob swam and relaxed in the “coolish” water. Outside temperature was around 90. He said he felt refreshed.

We then drove to the campground and hiked a trail to Twin Falls. Two deer were on the trail but were spooked when we came along. Twin Falls was a small waterfall that had two three-foot drops (at least what we could see of it).
Deer on trail. Don't you love those eyes??

Oh, another dear!
Both pictures turned out great...couldn't decide, used them both.

Because we hadn’t been there yet, we drove to Johnson City, home of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, and hiked a mile-long trail at the LBJ National Historical Park. It was getting dark so we went home.

On one-mile loop trail.

We hiked/walked four miles today.

Tomorrow afternoon we’ll have internet again and I can post my blogs and get email and Facebook again!!!

  1. It is beautiful. I love waterfalls too. The one big thing I miss in carolina is hiking the Parkway and finding waterfalls. Always stunning.
