ME THINKS, INKS: This would be a good weekend to spend time at Inks Lake State Park. They will be holding a star party on Friday and Saturday nights, a geocaching workshop on Saturday as well as a guided hike and a program for the kiddos at night. It is always a good time to go to Inks and the weather forecast for this weekend makes it an especially good time to go out for a visit. Photo from TPWD files.
DON’T DELAY: Saturday is the time to head over to the Austin Science and Nature Center. That is when they will be holding their fall festival for the kids featuring an owl and bat presentation, a program at the planetarium, a guided hike, and a display of animal bones, skulls and teeth. Kids love the animal bones for some reason. Have fun.
Sunday would be a good time to head over to McKinney Falls State Park. That afternoon park rangers will be conducting a fly fishing seminar. They will teach you all about casting, fish identification and safety measures needed to enjoy an afternoon going after the lunkers. Best part of all is they will supply all the equipment. Have fun.
