Oct. 28-29 Buescher State Park (Smithville, Texas)

I headed south of Austin. I wanted to drop off a bucket of obsidian at Dave Scott’s Earth Native Wilderness School. I had dug this obsidian at the Glass Buttes in Oregon on the college spring break 2017. I thought I would want to flintknap it but knowing the shards of glass that are generated in the process, I decided this was not something I would want to do just anywhere and the wilderness school could use it in their classes. Dave has a nice setup with a small spring-fed stream running through the property. His classes have quite a few participants, and it looks like he has some very knowledgeable instructors. Check out the school’s website.

While in the area for a couple of days, I stayed at Buescher State Park. The main entrance was closed due to some flooding from Hurricane Harvey. The park had some nice campsites and trails, and a fishing lake. Since I have an allergy to fish and seafood, I do not fish – certainly do not want to torture the fish if I am not fishing for food.
