Take a drive over to Blanco with a picnic lunch and enjoy the river as it quietly flows past. As October and November roll around you may want to venture out to Lost Maples State Park just south of Austin. Most people relate fall foliage and the “changing of the leaves” to the eastern portion of the United States. However, portions of Texas actually see dramatic changes in foliage coloration as fall draws near. New Englanders aren’t the only that get to enjoy watching the fall foliage change, Lost Maples Natural Area in Central Texas offers Texans and visitors to Texas a breathtaking palette of colors every fall.
