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.
