San Marcos: City With A River

Postby NefariousNed on Wed Feb 18, 2015 12:33 am

A visit to the San Marcos River earlier today. While I have visited the downtown area of the University town of San Marcos over the
years, this was the first time I had gone exploring the nature trails along the river at Rio Vista Park. While it was rather stark and
bleak----and, at 34 degrees, rather chilly---it was a rewarding camera experience. (And I'm betting it looks all the more splendid in
the springtime.)

Does anyone know what kind of berries these are? I wonder if they are edible? You'd think the birds would be all over them, as they seem
to grow in abundance along the San Marcos River.

Trail dips down over a small (and almost dry) crick that runs into the river. Note the log bridge.

A river gauge at the top of that far side says that high water is 14 feet.

Nature trail along the river. I must've walked about two and a half miles of it. It also went off in different directions, but I'd wanted to
follow the river.
