Fort Woth Nature Refuge

So Saturday I went to the Fort Worth Refuge, an amazing haven in so close to the hustle and bustle of Fort Worth. The refuge is over 3000 acres and has over 20 miles of trails and is only 20ish minutes from downtown Fort Worth. 
I used the opportunity to continue playing with the Panasonic 4K cameras.

7 a.m. I pulled into the park and started on the prairie trail which leads to their bison range. Texas has had some unnaturally cool and wet weather lately and I believe it has been saving it up, even at 7 you could tell it was going to be a pretty hot day. Because of the heat most of what I saw were insects, I did see one deer about 20 yards away but it saw me before I saw it and headed off on its way. The one large animal that was not hiding because of the heat was the bison, I got to see one of the babies. It was so cute!

I wrapped up my trip around 12 when it was getting really hot went into the visitors center just in time for an unforecasted shower to pour down. The only thing I could think was how great full I was that I was not on a trail when that happened, life lesson learned, always keep a trash bag in your pocket for the camera for emergencies. If you ever go to the refuge be sure to ask for Troy, he does a guided walk Saturdays at 10am and is a wealth of knowledge. Of course I found this out after he was done but he told me plenty and showed me some of the photos he has taken and I plan on going back to do his walk someday. 

Check out how things went in the video below. Hope you enjoy!
