Off on a whim in the truck camper we had what was the most spectacular two-day adventure yet.  McKinney Falls State Park in Austin is one of Texas' many natural treasures.  Super easy to get to from Houston, San Antonio, Dallas or anywhere in between.  At the park you will find two sets of waterfalls with plenty of room to swim, Old Baldy the giant cypress tree, an ancient rock shelter, and plenty of hiking, biking, fishing.
