The Guadalupe River near Hunt, which is a small community 20 miles west of Kerrville.
When the kids were here we spotted this interesting looking old ranch truck near Medina.
While out running around in Ingram (between Kerrville and Hunt) last week, we "discovered" Stonehenge II on the grounds of The Hill Country Arts Foundation.

Bandera, TX

We had a great time when Casey, Angie, Rylee and Parker spent a few days with us at Thanksgiving. A trip to Bandera, the "Cowboy Capital of Texas", was one of the week's highlights.
"Da Boys" saddling up during lunch at the Old Spanish Trail Restaurant...Parker on left, Rylee on right.
Trying on hats...
Parker and Rylee with new friends. The man told the boys they needed their picture taken with a "real live indian and his wolf"...he was right!
A few pix of the stock on one of many exotic game ranches in the hill country. We found these along the highway between Kerrville and Bandera. Blackbuck Antelope, Zebra and Wildebeest.

Around the Hill Country

Downtown Kerrville
The Guadalupe River running through town. There is a great city park along the river with nice paved walking/biking trails, a summer splash pad for the kids, a dog park, playgrounds and picnic areas.
One of several crossings on the Medina River
Scenery southwest of us near Vanderpool
The Frio Pecan Farm a few miles east of Leakey. A working farm that also has cabin rentals along the Frio River.
We learned about Chikin Earl's years ago when watching an episode of Texas Country Reporter. The place is located on the Frio Pecan Farm and only opens on Tuesdays. Finally got to try it out last month and we weren't disappointed.
My plate of chicken. Speaks for itself, doesn't it?
