I recently moved to Central Texas from Portland, OR. Portland is a wonderland for me- lovely and mysterious- I love the way nature still overtakes the city in all of the beautiful parks and neighborhoods. I have spent many days and evenings in Portland, just walking around under the canopy of trees- feeling a connection with nature within the town.
I didn't imagine that TX could create that same feeling for me- but I was wrong! I bought a State Park pass shortly after moving here and have spent quite a lot of time hiking with my sweet friend (and dog) Tinker- exploring various parks in the hill country. There are so many beautiful parks here- and so many different types of geographical environments- from partial desert, to shrub covered hills, to forests- it's really quite amazing!

Though I do miss my beloved Portland, I have found a home here in the wilds of Texas- and am happy to explore this beautiful land.
