- Description: Stephen F. Austin State Historical Park lies in Austin County, Texas about 50 miles West of Houston. The Brazos River runs through the park and there is also a network of hiking trails. Full camping facilities are available at this park. I was impressed by the quantity of large hardwood trees at this park. This particular oak had obviously seen some hard years. The resurrection ferns on this tree will often appear dried & dead. After an ample rain they come back to life.
- Gear: Pentax 67-45mm lens-bogen 3036 tripod
