About an hour outside of Houston is Brazos Bend State Park. This place is kind of like a beautiful swamp. If you hit it at the right time the whole place is crawling with alligators. We were hoping to see a lot of them today as it was the first warm day in a while, but we only saw a few.
I find all the trees there to be so beautiful. They all have Spanish moss hanging on and completely covering them.
We wheeled Baba out onto the pier. She walked along the pier and got her exercise while we all walked along the trail to the tower on the far side.
My girl's love having cameras on their iphones. If you follow them on instagram you are sure to be in for a surprise all the time from them!
I took this photo hoping that through all the branches you could see the snake. Can you spot it? Here is the same image zoomed in on the snake!
This was the biggest alligator we saw close to us.
My dad is standing next to a sign showing the highest the water level had ever been. It is hard to imagine that this swamp has been a complete lake sometimes.
There were a lot of turtles out. Usually each log was filled with turtles. So that's why I took a photo of this one -- there is only 1 little turtle on it.
