Colorado Bend State Park
After my getaway to Charleston, we spent the second half of spring break camping and hiking @ Colorado Bend State Park this year.The park's rep as one of Texas's finest did not disappoint: great hikes, camping right on the river (it's always full, be sure to get a reservation), scenic Gorman Falls, and starry skies. You really feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, and somewhere special, at Colorado Bend.
Bonus: We found a winery on our hunt for silverware (first time forgetting that at home) and ice cream. Alamosa Wine Cellars was perfect for an afternoon break, check it out if you're in Bend.
