Galls
This tree along Big Creek stood out from the rest for its large number of unusual galls along its trunk. (Photo by Lone_Star)
Interesting Find
I wasn't sure what these red & white balls growing on this little white oak were, but the Texas A&M Forest Service helped me identify them as a type of gall. The formation is a reaction to an insect, fungus, or bacteria. (Photo by Lone_Star)
Trailhead #11
This trailhead is off FM2025 a couple of hundred yards north of the parking area. (Photo by Lone_Star)
Double Lake
This scenic lake is off the LSHT, but provides a full-service campground and amenities. (Photo by Lone_Star)
Camo
I would have never seen this moth had it not been sitting (unwisely) on this aluminum trail blaze. It blends perfectly with the bark on the tree! (Photo by Lone_Star)
Fungi
These massive fungi were as large as saucers. I laid my hiking stick across the log to provide some scale. (Photo by Lone_Star)
