O’leno State Park

A few weekends ago, we decided to go hiking in a state park we have been to. O’leno State Park was the one we picked. It took us two hours to get there, but it was well worth it.

Since Sir Son is allergic to the outdoors and we knew we would not hear the end of it, we let him stay home. The girlies were more than willing to go.

This park is located on the Sante Fe River. There are several hiking trails to pick from. We decided to go on the trail that leads to where the river disappears underground. It comes up later 3 miles away.

The area is just amazing. Here take a look. This view is from the suspension bridge.

The photo below was taken while looking into the river. See how blue the sky looks? It really was that blue.

Now this is a picture of a spider web. The spider was making the web as I took the picture. It was really something to watch. I have decided to do an alphabet photo hunt, so this web will serve as my letter “O”. I also have a “Y”. 😀

Along the banks were gazillion Cypress knees. Some of the trees were huge!

Well, that is all for now. I’ll post more photos in a day or two.

  1. A letter photo hunt sounds like an interesting on-going project.

    You should publish your alphabet book.

  4. Very nice. I like the reflection on the water picture.

  5. That was a pretty hike. I think Sir Son should have gone along to build character. Yours, not his. 😀
