Texas is BIG…Really Big! We’ve been in the state for 3 weeks and we’ve seen a bunch. After we left Leander (near Austin), our last stop was in Village Creek State Park in Lamberton, TX, outside of Beaumont. Great one night stop on our way out of the state. We visited Big Thicket National Preserve where we saw Pitcher Plants, one of five carnivorous plant species in the country, and hiked on the trails of the State Park along Village Creek.

Alison found a big tree!
The black spots are bugs that the plant is digesting.
