We weren’t expecting the giant Live Oak trees in this Park. The official TPWD site mentioned the alligators but not the big trees. For anyone outside of Texas, they keep leaves all year round – hence the name.
I just finished reading a book where West Texas ranchers would cut off the branches of these trees to feed to their goats during long droughts (The Time it never Rained by Elmer Kelton). It would be more accurate to say I listened to the book since it was from Audible. I like to listen to books at the gym or while I’m sewing. My next … The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.
Back to the trees – this one was one of the largest we saw with all of it’s branches intact so I forced Alan to stand still long enough for me to take a picture.
