McKinney Falls

I think it's quite possible that Shawn and I are never meant to hike the Homestead Trail here. We have gone to the park 3 times now. And each time we couldn't go on the hike. The first time it was because it had rained a bunch earlier in the week so the fecal contamination of the river was high...and the water was high, so we couldn't cross the river to get to the trail. The second time we got to the park and just as we left the car is started to rain. Hard. We insisted on walking around for about 20 minutes before we realized that it wasn't going to stop any time soon. We then spent the next hour trying to drive home in the pouring rain. The third time (which was this last weekend), the trail was closed because of some expo going on at the Texas Parks and Wildlife main building. I don't know what it was about, but we kept hearing gunfire so it obviously didn't make us want to push our luck by crossing the river and walking on the forbidden trail. Well...maybe next time.

Normally I'd say third times the charm, but hopefully for ya'll it'll be the fourth :)

Maybe next time, you need to invite the Allen's. That will surely improve your luck!

Ha, I think you're right Lon. Also, We checked out the "primitive" campsites there...they're like 100 yards from the parking lot so we might even be able to get Daniella and 'Nessa to come along.
