H.A.T.s _11_2013 Fanthorp Inn, Washington-on-the-Br­azos, & Bluebonnnets

  • Mar 30, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

THE LINK BELOW IS GOOGLE MAP OF THE DRIVING TOUR I PLAN TO DO FOR THE BLUEBONNETS AND THE STOPS INDICATED IN THE PLAN BELOW.  PRINT IT OUT IF YOU HAVE A TENDENCY TO GET LOST.

DRIVING PLAN

PLEASE TRY TO CARPOOL AND DRIVERS BE CAREFUL WITH DRIVING SINCE THERE MAY BE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THE ROAD  AND   SUDDEN STOPS FOR BLUEBONNET SIGHTINGS.  PASSENGERS DONT DISTRACT YOUR DRIVER TOO MUCH.

We take a break from intense hiking on this event.  We'll experience a little of Texas history, Bluebonnets, and some wine ;-)

My phone in case you get lost:[masked]

Fanthorp Inn Historic Site Website: CLICK HERE

Washington-on-the-Brazos Website: CLICK HERE

The Plan:

1.  Do the tour of historic Fanthrop Inn

2. Do ~ 3 mile hike of Washington-on-the-Brazos (flowers blooming everwhere hopefully) and  Barrington farm to check on the farmer and his turkey.

3. Visit Pleasant Hill Winery - http://www.pleasanthillwinery.com/

Along the way and within these stops we hope to see a lot flowers, especially bluebonnets.

Initial Parking & Meeting Point: Park at or near Fanthorp Inn.  The website does not give details on parking and so I guess it's street parking.

Optional After Hike Event : Silver Saddle Smokehouse

    Hugo..a suggestion.. gather up all the people that are solo and allow them get familiar with a group. Just in case the troop gets split up and too thin to communicate with.
