Yesterday we went hiking on a friend's property near Burnett, TX. The area calls itself the Top of the Texas Hill Country, and indeed, the view from the cliff above Lake Buchanan is dramatic. We climbed down dense forest to reach the vertical rock face, where water dripped down on us from the ledge. Scott, an expert avian veterinarian, led the way -regularly pointing out different species of vultures and hawks that hovered in the sky above us - while Gary and I trailed behind taking pictures. We climbed back up the steep slope along a waterfall. The coolness of the water was refreshing.
