Crescent Bend Nature Park is made up of 190 acres just south of a particularly twisty section of Cibolo Creek, which forms the border of Bexar and Guadalupe counties.
There are 3.4 miles of trails, including the main trail and its loops and offshoots, that wind along Cibolo Creek.
Very few things in life are assured.
Dr. Malcolm Cleaveland stands at the base of an ancient bald cypress along the Blanco River in Wimberley. In a camera lens, he is dwarfed by a giant tree that was alive a half century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. To be more precise, this particular bald cypress dates back to 1426 or earlier.
