Friday Afternoon in Spring
at Old Baylor Park
Washington County

Or
Who Will Photograph the Photographers?

A Seasonal Note by Brewster Hudspeth

Perfect body language for wildflower photography.

Located on the La Bahia Trail (presently designated as FM 390), the small park is just west of Independence, Texas. Consisting of just a few acres, which include the ruins of the old womenís dormitory, the park usually has wildflowers throughout the year, but especially in the Spring.

You can have the run of the place during the summer, but itís a different story during wildflower season. This collection of photos was taken during our Friday afternoon visit Ė or two circles around the parkís centerpiece Live Oak trees.

Our (Mexican) hats are off to these adventures who were smart enough to get a jump on weekend visitors. Although we normally donít include candid photographs in our content, everyone was having such a good time, we got caught up in the moment.

If youíre reading this after April and feel youíve missed the peak of the season, be assured that both park and trail can entertain year-round.
