Copper Breaks State Park
Quanah, TX
2 nights, Site 22
View this Texas State Park here: Copper Breaks

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.

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.

I took these photos while at Copper Breaks State Park. We were driving out of the park and i noticed her sitting on this fence post. I got out of the car and was able to capture these shots before, as you can see, she darted off!
