Bastrop & Buescher State Parks

Aloha Everyone,

Upon entering the Bastrop Park headquarter, Rangers Layla (left) & Andie (right) greeted us with their friendly, enthusiastic Texas welcome.

After securing an excellent site on top of a hill for the next two nights, we drove back to the city of Bastrop to have lunch at Panda Express.

My lunch - Honey grazed walnut shrimp, stirred fried vegetable & brown rice

J.J.'s lunch - Honey grazed walnut shrimp, chicken mushroom & fried rice

Bastrop and Buescher State Parks are connected by a 12-mile road which at times looks more like a trail. In 2011, a wildfire burned 96 percent of the park.

After enjoying the ultra clean shower and restroom facilities. J.J. and I took an evening walk to enjoy spotting birds and seeing buds starting to open. The weather is slowly getting warmer.
