Beautiful views, challenging hikes

We started our trip by going to Gorman Falls. Hike is pretty steep on the way down - it would probably be hard to do this with little kids (my fur child made things difficult for me). Super beautiful. we walked around at the bottom for a while and found other pretty rock formations and things to look at. Hiked back up and prepped for our primitive/backcountry campsite Windmill area 08. Site was gorgeous and felt completely isolated. we could hear people occasionally at other campsites but other than that we did feel like we were alone except for the gunshots every 30 minutes or so (my partner said there was a safari nearby). We didn't mind too much as we still felt like we had our privacy. 

The next morning we got up and went to Spicewood Springs. wonderfully challenging hike! loved it. 

Will certainly be coming back to Colorado Bend. I can see why everyone in Texas speaks so highly of it.
