I was back for the third time at Caprock Canyon State Park. I wanted to hike two different trails that I did not get to the first time I was here. First, Eagle Point Trail is a two mile out and back trail that goes to the natural tunnel and bridge.
I got on the trail later than expected due to the 100+ degree temperature. The temperature never went down too much but it was a dry desert heat. Hiking here was much different than hiking in the hill country which was very humid. Although the temperature was hotter in the panhandle of Texas, I did not sweat as much as I did in the south of Texas. The trails were not occupied by people but the bison rerouted me twice. I started down Eagle Point Trail and about a half mile in a bison was camped out around one of the corners. I decided that the bison could have the trail and back tracked to the trailhead. My friend peeking around the corner.
I started my second attempt on the trail from the other trailhead. The views were impressive as usual. This place is so large that you could hike for days and see something different each day. Start of the other trailhead.Here I go again.The natural bridge and tunnel area with my shadow.Sun setting in the canyonFavorite picture of the dayI am in a ditch trying to avoid another bison. I was a half mile from the trailhead again.First time seeing a horned toad this big.
I miss this park already.
