Many Texas State Parks sponsor a First Hike for the new year. We had a beautiful day scheduled for January 1st so Sweetieheart and I went for it: we drove to Fort Richardson to celebrate the new year.

Rain and storms were forecast for later in the day but the morning featured clear blue skies with a light breeze from the south.

Fort Richardson offered a guided hike. We had a park ranger and a volunteer to wrangle our group. The hike covered slightly over a mile of park and about a century of Texas and American history.

It was, in my opinion, the best way to spend New Year’s Day.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
