While in Texas, I worked hard, and I certainly played hard. I made a wonderful friend, Liz, with my same sense of adventure. She was one of my site supervisors who worked for AmeriCorps and SBP. We enjoyed visiting many locations in Texas. Those included the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, TX; Corpus Christi, TX; Ciudad Acuna, Mexico; South Padre National Park, TX; Austin, TX; San Antonio, TX; Canyon Lake, Wimberley, TX; and McKinnley Falls State Park, Austin, TX. I’m incredibly grateful that I was able to see that much of Texas; so thank you for your friendship, car, humor, and sense of adventure, Liz! See you soon(ish).
