May is known as Great Outdoors Month so what is a better time to visit some of the best Texas state parks than now? Texas is known for a lot of things but outdoor recreation is our specialty. We have fishing, camping, RV parks, swimming, cabins, barbecue and much more. Here are a few of my favorite state parks in the Lone Star State.
Hunter Mountain Trail is the most famous hiking in Catskills. The second highest mountain in Catskills the Hunter offers you a 3.6-mile hike. The starting point is from Lexington it takes you along the Spruceton trail. After this is an ascent of 2,000 feet this is most demanding part of the trail.

Green tea comes in large varieties & each variety is rated based on its availability, flavor, taste, popularity, health & fitness benefits and much more. Green tea, a famous range of Chinese tea variety is what lot of people might know. But not many people know all of the varieties of this tea. Green tea’s most popular variety Long Jing Tea, is the secret I was talking about. Its one of the Top 10 varieties of Chinese green tea and the quality is notably very high but it does not come from the more famous West-Regions online login and therefore does not command the same high price.
So what makes a trophy smallmouth? Unlike their largemouth cousin, smallmouth bass typically do not reach the same size. While the ten pound mark signifies a trophy largemouth, a six pound smallie is considered a prize. Lake Texoma offers anglers an exclusive chance at one of these treasures. Plus, three, four and five pound smallmouth are becoming common.
Seneca Lake is an oasis for the water lovers. The thirty-five mile long lake is perfect for boating and fishing. Hop on the Stroller IV for a sight seeing tour during the day. Then at night the Seneca Legacy offer a wonderful meal and a relaxing boat ride. The Seneca Lake Pier is a great place to sit and take in the beauty of what seems like an endless lake.
On Friday afternoon, I skied the Jackrabbit Trail from McKenzie Pond Road (outside Saranac Lake) to McKenzie Pond. The first mile or so has lots of roots and some rocks, and the cover was inadequate. Nevertheless, people have been skiing this popular part of the Jackrabbit.
