Fall in the Texas Hill Country – Texas hill country landscape canvas and prints – This is the clear waters of the Frio River as it flow downstream from Garner State Park with the cypress trees and maple trees lining the river showing their fall color on this day. The sun was just at the right level to send it rays through this cypress tree and shine down into the river and show all the river rocks. Autumn in the Texas hill country is my favorite time of the year it can be colorful as the cypress turn this rusty shade of orange to red and the maple change from yellow to orange along the blue green waters of the Frio river in this texas landscape. In the background you can see Old Baldy from the other side of Garner State Park a favorite climbing spot for many to the area.
Fall at Garner State Park – Texas Landscape Fall Prints and Canvas – The long branches of the cypress trees stretch out their limbs over the Frio river as it flows downstream toward the Old Baldy before it makes a turn downstream. You can see the fall rusty red colors in the cypress trees along the bank of the Frio. The sun was shining on the other side and you can see the color changes of the maples and reflect the colors back into the waters. After some heavy rains the water was flowing on the Frio river through Garner State Park so the cypress were in the water so I waded out into the cold waters and capture this image so I could capture Old Baldy in the back ground in this photo.
Check out these seasonal fall colors among the trees along the Frio river in the Texas Hill Country. These images were taken in Concan and Garner State Park in the Texas hill country along the Frio river as the leave were changing colors on the maple and cypress trees last year. Concan is a small community in Uvalde County in the southwestern portion of the Hill Country of Texas. It sits along the Frio River close to Garner State Park. Every year it is a popular spot for summer vacationers. Garner State Park is located in the community of Concan,Texas. Garner State Park, is the most popular state park in Texas for vacationers. If you want to get one of the cabins or shelters here you better make your reservation early or you might now be able to get one. Even for campers the park fills up during peak season before noon on many days. As a child we went there almost every year for three weeks every summer and they were some of the best vacation times in my memory. The park has lots to do in the area you can swim, kayak, paddle boat, hike, bird watch, horseback riding, bike or explore the area around the park. One of the most popular thing that draw the locals to the park is the nightly dances at the pavillion beginning in the spring and summer. You don’t need to stay in the park there are plenty of other places in Concan to camp or stay along the Frio River but again if you plan a vacation there in the summer peak season you better plan it early to make your reservation. The word Frio is the Spanish word for cold, so keep that in mind before you jump in to the river. The Frio river is to me one of the pretties rivers with it clear emerald waters in Texas.
