Cedar Hill State Park, Texas

We are used to biking on paved trails and were in for a big surprise when we reached Cedar Hill State Park. It was a mountain bike trail with steep slopes to provide a good adrenalin rush. We (as in kids and I) backed off and Mr. Hubby put his mountain bike to good use. 
The kids and I took the 3 mile hike and stopped numerous times for some good shots. We I was totally unprepared for the hike. First, we did not have locks for the bike, but took a chance any way. Luckily our bikes were there untouched, when we returned from hike. Secondly, I was not wearing my hiking shoes. A good hiking shoes can provide the much needed grip in steep slopes than sneakers. If you are looking for a hiking shoes, I would highly recommend Merrell shoes.

It was a lovely hike by the water and trees, watching the sun go down. As we did a day trip, we did not get a chance to explore other activities like boating, farm house walk through and the other hiking trails. This is one we already thinking of returning to, as its only a 40 minute drive from home.
After a good 3 mile hike, we ate some desi khana while enjoying the setting sun.

Such a lovely shot of the sunset Geeta, you are lucky to be living so close to this place,as 40 mins. drive is nothing for this piece of heaven. Where did you find desi khanna at this place?
I am sure your next visit to this place would be more thrilling as you would be properly geared up.
