Hike: Buescher State Park – near Smithville, TX

Weather: chilly, overcast, low 50s

Hikers: Ian, Court, Biff, Finn

Length: 4.4 miles

 

We went out to my parent’s cabin near La Grange for New Year’s Eve, as usual, and decided to go hike in Buescher and see how the trails are recovering from the Hidden Pines Fire in October 2015.  They aren’t completely open yet, but we were able to hike about three quarters of the main trail.

It was really fascinating to see the life cycle of the forest and how it is recovering.  Little saplings were everywhere amongst the dead and burned trees.  I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking.
