{Big Rocks Park in Glen Rose, TX}

On the way home from our Strawn trip (after going to Lake Mineral Wells State Park) we also stopped at Big Rocks Park in Glen Rose, TX.  We've been here many times before and it's always a good time. We weren't prepared to swim this time, we just wanted to see how much water was in the river. It wasn't much! Texas is getting a lot of rain lately so hopefully this will change.

Big Rocks Park is a unique park located on the Paluxy River in Glen Rose. It's full of unusually large rocks that you can climb & explore!  As always, Mason had a great time climbing all of the huge rocks! The sky made for a pretty backdrop in our pictures. 

Then we made our way down to see the Paluxy River.  Here you can take a dip in the river to combat that good ol' Texas heat. 

Then we headed back to the big rocks. Nate joined Mason in jumping from rock to rock while I followed and took pictures!
