Comanche Bluff Trail, Granger Lake, TX
Chilly, WINDY, mid 40s
Ian, Court, Biff, Finn
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged so let’s get 2021 kicked off. Surely it has to be better than 2020.
We’ve been hiking, but mostly trails I’ve blogged before, so I haven’t been updating the blog. This was a new one near Taylor, along Granger Lake. Granger Lake is another Army Corps of Engineers project, like Lake Georgetown, and also on the San Gabriel River, downstream a bit.
We left the house early and got to the trail head just after 8am. The night chill was still very present and the wind would howl whenever the trail turned toward the lake.
There were a couple of old iron bridges on the trail from back in the early 20th century. One of which is said to be haunted.
I am a geek for when infrastructure and trail meet. My favorite are railroads, but bridges are good too.
We hiked on for a while, but we were on a time schedule, so had to turn back before the end of the trail. We only saw one other hiker and his dog on this chilly morning. This wasn’t the greatest trail, but it was nice to get back out to nature regardless.
