Backpacking Lost Maples

A backpacking trip to Lost Maples State Natural Area makes a perfect fall getaway. Actually, it makes a great getaway just about any time. In the November issue of Texas Highways.

Canyon Lake Gorge

Tours of this gorge, scoured out by floodwaters in a matter of days, take you through millions of years of geologic time, and some pretty darn nice scenery. Read about it in my Texas Highways article.

Save the reefs, eat lionfish!

The only hope for controlling this invasive species may be eating it. Good thing it's delicious. Read my piece about trying some at Haven Houston.

Ummm, pralines!

A little trip down memory lane, and to San Saba, Texas, in search of creamy pecan pralines, for Texas Highways Magazine.
