Honey Creek State Natural Area

This past weekend my son and I were privileged to get to tour the Honey Creek State Natural area which is attached to the Guadalupe River State Park outside of New Braunfels, Texas.  The state natural areas are limited use to the public, focused on preservation and research, this area has guided tours on Saturdays at 9 AM.  I could try to describe what it looked like compared to the Juniper and Oak scrub brush but I will let the pics do the talking.

At the end of the trip was this interesting formation of 3 trees growing together.  A Red Oak, a Live Oak and a small tree I did know the identity of.  Also growing from the top of the live oak was a prickly pear cactus.
