Location: Comanche Bluff Trail

Rating: 4stars
Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 4stars
Miles Hiked: 9.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes


I wasn't sure if I hiked the entire trail but it was a great hike either way.  I did get to the area with the birdhouses, and walked at least  a mile and a half past that on the jeep trail until the high reeds were surrounding me.  I saw a deer on the way out and 5 armadillos and 2 hikers on the way back.  The solitude was wonderful.  I didn't have to pay a fee to get in Taylor Park, but that might only have been because the gate was up and no attendant was on duty today.

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
