We had some time to kill, so decided to drive to Canyon Lake. What a great decision! This is a beautiful lake with plenty of walking trails. Numerous deer run wild making for great photos.

This area is absolutely beautiful. Camping, hiking, tubing, kayaking, Horseback riding, boating, or just plain hanging out you will not want to miss this area. A must see area of Texas hill country that God himself keeps an awesome inspiring finger on. DO NOT MISS!!
