There is nothing better than a cool breeze on a warm summer morning in the Texas Hill Country. And one of the best places in the world to enjoy this simple pleasure is at the Guadalupe River State Park, near New Braunfels, Texas. The park boasts some of he tallest and oldest Cypress trees in the region and these majestic old trees make wonderful subjects. I do believe they have more wrinkles than I do!
