The SFA Outdoor Pursuits planned this trip for the stretch of the Angelina River between Highway 63 and Martin Dies Jr. State Park. I was stoked to do this trip. I’ve done a decent bit of paddling, but I’ve never camped out of my canoe before. My wife and I signed ourselves up and hoped for the best.
We had a full roster, but had a few last minute cancellations. A couple of those spots got filled, so thankfully we didn’t wind up with a small group. It was a good group of folks. The group dynamic worked pretty well, and I never saw any conflicts. Unfortunately, I’m absolutely terrible with names so I only remember a couple of the folks who attended. My lack of short term memory in general doesn’t help here.
This was truly an amazing trip. Trip of a lifetime for me, but with a bit of luck, I’ll be able to take some more trips like this in my lifetime. The photo tour really helped me hone some photography skills. I hope to build on those skills in the future, also. My wife and I love the results! We have so many flower pictures because my wife wanted to have a large collage of flowers. We got a 20×30 collage print made, which is off getting framed and matted as we speak. We have a small collage of our mountain bike ride on the Kaloko Trails and several more individual photos in different sizes. I’m rather disappointed that Snapfish has such a poor selection of photo print sizes. Winkflash has a great selection, and I’ll be using them in the future.
