Mineola Nature Preserve

The Mineola Nature Preserve


 I have enjoyed visiting the Mineola Nature Preserve since I was in High School, way back in the mid-2000's. It's always been a tranquil place that I can travel through the woods of East Texas with a decent trail and plenty of wildlife and ponds to visit along the way. I was out there on August 11, 2017, and decided to record some footage of the Beaver Pond, so that anyone could enjoy it all year round.



 Plenty of insects out on that muggy hot day, and the wind was just about perfect, a nice light constant breeze to keep me from losing too much of my sanity. This was about three-quarters of a mile in, carrying about 20 lbs of gear, and I haven't exercised in about 2 years. It was an eye opening experience for sure! Anyways, the preserve was just so green and the plant life seemed to be all in full force, some still in bloom, but that greenness of everything was almost overwhelming. Luckily I could still see the rock paths to get out there, very thankful that those were made.



 Also, I am thinking of making this a periodical thing, as I find more reasons to get outside and enjoy all that life and nature has to offer. If you have any suggestions or thoughts on this, feel free to comment on the youtube video or send an email! I appreciate your time, and thanks for checking this out.
