Cant make up my mind.I'm about an hour from Colorado Bend. We've been blessed with some good rains recently and everything is green, so I think CB would be a good option.
A bit different but we just spent our annual week at the Frio River and It was noticeably higher than usual. Seems like most of the State is greener than usual. Side note, we've been going for just shy of 20 years and I hate to say it, but the crowd at the Frio seems to be changing and not for the better. More people, more rudeness, more disregard for the natural surroundings, etc. Sad.
Iíve been to Rattlesnake Springs several times. A long, long time ago. I liked it. Itís a former ranch built around a spring-fed marsh, but the marsh is mostly gone, even though the spring is still active. If it hasnít changed in the last twenty years, the layout is a string of ponds and ditched streams stretching about a quarter-mile beside a dead-end road. It can be fairly hot in summer. Plenty of shade trees, though not distributed continuously. I remember a few picnic tables because I ate my lunches there while birding, and Iím pretty sure they had the standard park grills. Seems like I remember an old closed-up pump house or maybe it might have been a bathhouse. Restrooms too, I think. But Iíve never seen another human being there. Great place to find unusual bird occurrences, especially during spring and fall migrations.
