Anniversary tradition

Contributor wishes to remain anonymous

Since 1985 my wife and I have been camping, hiking and biking in Texas state parks. Over the past 28 years we have visited just about every park within 2-3 hours of Austin multiple times.

We have so many stories but one thing is always a must: we go camping every year for our wedding anniversary. Enchanted Rock and Pedernales Falls are two of our favorite parks. We spent our 1st anniversary at Enchanted Rock and our 24th at Pedernales Falls.

During that trip to Pedernales Falls on our 24th anniversary it was a beautiful orange full moon. The attached picture is a shot I took that night at Pedernales Falls State Park. So many great memories and adventures to even begin to tell. But this picture was memorable.
