TRAVEL TEXAS- Chalk Bluff Park and Krause Springs

Just wrapped up the first two camping trips of the year.  Of course, they were supposed to be in our new vintage camper.  Instead, I was in a tent.  But that’s another story… The first location we tried out was Chalk Bluff.  I had heard about it (and its crystal-clear waters and beautiful bluffs) for… Read more »
