Helping out the parks

Iron Rods
Iron Rods
There are several of these iron rods staked into the rock on both sides of the creek. This is just upstream from the McKinney grist mill, but I'm not sure what, if anything, it had to do with that.

The weather today was fantastic and a good number of people were out in the park today as a result.  I can't complain too much though since Texas Parks needs all of the visitors that it can get so that they can keep the gates open!

The Homestead Trail is far from the most scenic state park trail, but it's a little bit of mileage.  On top of that I had failed to log my last visit, so I needed to get this one recorded to make it official.
