Kicking off another season of camping and hiking

Well, our hiking season is off to a fine start, and I suppose it is about time for me to add a few words.  We started our season with a campout at Galveston Island State Park.  That campout is more of a mini-holiday than a hiking sort of expedition.  Members partake of various activities including beach time, shopping, dining, kayaking, and even some hiking.  Since then the group has done Day Hikes in Downtown Houston, exploring one of the 10K hikes from the Houston Happy Hikers.  We have been to Dennis Johnston Park and hiked a bit of the Spring Creek Greenway from the park to Pundt Park and back.  That makes for a 6.4 mile round trip hike.  The group also headed way west for a weekend at Lost Maples.
