Tickfaw State Park, Springfield, LA

On our way home from Hammond last weekend, we veered south of I-12 to explore Tickfaw State Park in Livingston Parish. What a gem! As we followed the signs down a narrow country road, we were convinced we were lost. It looked like we were going to the middle of nowhere. And then finally, we see the park entrance.

The park is well-maintained and well-used but not crowded; at least not on that particular Sunday. There's a lovely campground and newer-looking cabins, a nature center, playground, a pavilion for ranger talks. And many very nice hiking trails. We strolled along a couple trails, taking in the beauty of Louisiana bayous.

We saw lots of these lizards. Bob says it is a five-lined skink.

Been anywhere beautiful lately?
