This week’s swimming hole tip is the gorgeous Wes Cooksey Park near Camp Wood in the western part of the Hill Country. This county park is located on the spring fed Nueces River and it is a superb place to beat the relentless Texas heat. Have fun.
This week’s tubing trip pick is Texas State Tubes on the San Marcos River a little east of San Marcos. The big Float Fest was last weekend so maybe it won’t be so crowded on the water on Saturday and Sunday, but to be safe you should get out of the house early. Have fun and don’t forget the sunscreen. http://hillcountryoutdoorguide.com/locat…/texas-state-tubes/
If you want to learn more about turtles, and who doesn’t, then consider heading over to Blanco State Park on Saturday. During the morning they will have a presentation about those slow moving creatures and then afterwards you can go down to the river and look at some of them. Afterwards, when the thermometer heads up to the 90s, you can take a swim in the river to cool down. Have fun
