Lost Maples, Texas
Leaving Bastrop, I had booked a couple of nights at a special campground, tucked into a canyon west of San Antonio called Lost Maples State Nature Area. Sounded interesting and the location again put me into a natural setting and only a half days drive west. This fit my parameters of trying to drive 200 miles or less per day in a casual sight seeing manner and end up at an area with it's own special beauty. Plan also was to stay for 2 or 3 days at each location, to chill out and absorb what was there.
All of them look to be in running condition. He did have a machine shop in the back of the building.
The wife also had a little restaurant set up serving Aussie dishes and some beverages. I was surprised to see a half dozen patrons already inside, the morning I showed up but even more so, when I left, there was over a dozen folks there taking photos and chatting with the owners. All 'Bike Talk', lively and animated. A fun place!
