Lost Maples State Natural Area - My Favorite Images
This gallery contains images and photographs from one of my favorite Autumn locations – Lost Maples. While most folks think of this as a state park (including me), it is actually Lost Maples State Natural Area. This pristine area is located in the Texas Hill Country 71 miles west of San Antonio and 5 miles north of Vanderpool.
The first recorded history of Lost Maples was with the 17th Century Spanish explorations. But Indian tribes such as the Apache and Comanche once roamed this area, too. In the early 1970s, the state of Texas acquired the land that makes up this location, and the public was granted access in 1980.
Lost Maples is best known for the remnant Red Maple trees that grow on the limestone bedrock terrain, but the Red Oak trees are also prominent in the area. And in Autumn, these trees come alive with color. Crowds of photographers and tourists flock to this park each November in search of some of the best fall color Texas can offer. If you can go, the best time is mid-week because the park can fill up early in the day on weekends. The Lost Maples official website also has a weekly update of the fall colors.
