Vacation options change dramatically as the heat of Texas’s brutal summer is repelled by the first Arctic fronts. As the seasons change, the weather and the places you should visit change. However, a place remains as attractive and beautiful as ever. Garner Park, with its abundance of wildlife, natural beauty and fortunately for the adventurous population, is a great place to spend the winter. Here are 5 cool things you can do in the winter.
1. Stay inside
Renting a cozy cabin in the winter does not always mean having a place to sleep at night after a day of adventure. The cabin itself can be used to relax, unwind and spend time with family and friends. Sometimes on a very cold day, it is better to stay on fire and relax by watching a good movie or reading a fascinating book. Garner State Park has single-family cabins and larger group or family cabins.
Even in winter, Texas is still beautiful. The cooler temperature is suitable for spending a day on exploration routes. In this state park, there are many paths to explore and there are different wildlife to observe in winter. Those with more experience can choose trails that offer more challenging and steeper slopes. The Frio Canyon is 2.8 miles, and there are shorter routes, such as the Blinn River, which follows the river for only 5.5 miles.
Even in winter, the Frio River is available for a boat trip. Colder temperatures lend themselves to some safety tips, but during the cold, cold winter days of Texas, the extra peace and quiet of the season is perfect for a boating adventure. Have a picnic lunch and go to the river in one of the different places. Kayak and canoe rental is available from many different vendors, or bring your own!
4. Be calm
Winter is a quieter time for cabin rental and / or camping. There are fewer families and the park is less crowded. Enjoy the peace and quiet and relax outside by the fire. Grill, tell stories and create some properties. Colder temperatures will be refreshing as long as you plan for extreme weather.
5. Camp outside
Unless the cold front is moving or there is a high probability of snow, ice or snow, camping is optional in the park all year round. Plan ahead and make sure you have an electric blanket, firewood and other necessities to keep warm in the middle of the night.
Even in winter, there is plenty to do in this Texas state park. Bring equipment and a sense of adventure and escape.
