This Texas State Park Is Coming Back To Life After Being Destroyed By A Raging Fire
As beautiful as the Texas Hill Country is, it’s also extremely dry. Couple that with the scorching temperatures we get down here in the summer, and it can be a recipe for disaster. Bastrop State Park has experienced not one, but TWO, fires in the past seven years that all but destroyed the vegetation. That didn’t stop Mother Nature from working her magic, however – just two years after the most recent blaze, and the park is almost fully restored. Keep scrolling to see the amazing transformation.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The park is located at 100 Park Road 1A, Bastrop, TX 78602. For more awesome state parks to visit in Texas, click here.
