Part 12 Winter Trip - Pedernales Falls State Park

Pedernales Falls State Park located on the banks of hte scenic Pedernales River consists of 5211.7 acres in Blanco County east of Johnson City.  

Prior to the purchase of this land by the State of Texas in 1970, this was a working ranch known as the Circle Bar Ranch.

When we visited the falls, water was running over the low falls due to earlier rains although during periods of drought it is not unusual for the falls to be dry and there just be pools of water.

After walking for a bit we suddenly came upon the river and the falls.

Taking a picture of the photographer!  Yes, it is really this cold outside.
