I'm sorry. I've been a bad BBC'er. I've had three trips to the park in 2016 and I've not yet written any reports. I'm not even finished editing the photos.

There are some from last year- the Bender in the snow.

Not sure if we want our faces in the calendar, but the group photo was an exceptional occasion :icon_biggrin:

I went back in January for a quick trip. I found a really interesting place near the Grapevine Hills 4/5 campsites.


45
And an excellent sunset near the west end of the park.


46
I led a workshop in April. Good times as usual.

And another workshop last month. I'm still sitting on hundreds of images that are waiting for my lazy butt to get moving and sift through them all.

But after seeing all the other nominations, I think we've got enough for another great calendar  :icon_biggrin:

Ok, since it looks like I'm not going to be able to spend much time on the computer tonight or the next two nights, I'm moving the deadline to some time Friday afternoon/evening.
