Copper Breaks State Park
2 nights, Site 22
Cloudy skies all day.
You just have to go with what you are given and that is what we did, several walks around Copper Breaks State Park with the doggies for a total of 4.5 miles.
During our walks we saw some interesting sights….
It was early evening when we saw this fellow hunting bugs in the grass.
A Texas Longhorn from the herd at Copper Breaks.
Perhaps it is the vintage look of these Windmills that I like so much.
Well past its blooming season, but still lovely with a splash of color.
It is always interesting to walk along a river bank. The Pease River, a tributary of the Red River which runs through West Texas, meanders its way through Copper Breaks State Park.
Tall reeds, protection for wildlife.
One of the small ponds in the park.
Now for the fun part ` seeing the Texas Longhorns at Copper Breaks.

The end of our day, enjoyed and treasured.
Looking forward to what tomorrow will bring. We will be on our way to Cooper Lakes State Park.

I LOVE those kinds of walks. So happy you had the time to breath and take in all the beauty! The roadrunner photos are awesome! Beep-beep!
I LOVE ROADRUNNERS! I miss seeing Roadrunners since we moved from Tucson…they have such personality! and they love lizards and frozen mini raw meatballs. Gimpy would “chatter” at our door for a handout at Rincon Village RV Park East. She would eat 3; take get 3 in her bill to take to her nest. Bad habit to feed “wildlife”, but everyone fed “Gimpy” at Rincon (she had a hurt foot). She was as much a “resident” of Rincon than any of us.
Those horns are so impressive. 🙂
The Longhorns look like they are posing! Love the roadrunner photos. I’ve never seen one slow down enough to get a picture.
