While camping at Colorado River Thousand Trails in Columbus, Texas
Campground: The campground is well maintained. The sites are spacious. The campers are friendly. The verizon & satellite reception is good in D section. We attended a potluck and concert at the activity center. The band played classic rock/folk music/Irish music. The band members passed out a booklet with the lyrics of the songs so we got to sing along with the band. I had a great time.
Wildflowers: I spotted several types of wildflowers here. I’ve been having a good time identifying all of them. I started taking pictures of them for a binder. Texas Blue bonnets, Cedar Sage, Wine Cup, White Prickly Poppy, Texas Indian Paintbrush, Texas Lantana, Pink Evening Primrose, Wind Flower, Bull Nettle, Coreopsis
Hiking: Kevin and I drove over to the Attwater Prairie Chicken Wildlife Refuge. We didn’t see any Prairie Chickens but we spotted several others birds and wildflowers here. Also, we hiked around the Monument Hill & Brewery State Historic Site.
Exercise: We walked 2-3 miles a day here. Also, we did a historic volksmarch 5k around Columbus, Texas. We saw several historic houses, the river, the courthouse, water tower and some local shops in town on the volksmarch.
Birding: Killdeer, Crested Caracara, Savannah Sparrow, Northern Harrier, Vesper Sparrow, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Vulture, Eastern Phoebe
