Cypress Trees at the Frio River

Cypress at Frio River— When my Frio River photo was selected the February 2016 winner in the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation Focus on the Wild statewide contest, I felt a strong need to return to Garner State Park and check out that beautiful setting. Since it was the 2016 Spring Break week, the park was full to capacity, but a quick short walk took me into the same area of that first photo from 2007. Things had changed, and I even believe that one of those cypress trees was gone and its stump was all I could see. Nevertheless, that place is still magical and like being in a fairy tale. A famous quote by Heraclitus came to mind: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”
