As I mentioned before, Westin sent Noah and I to their incredible San Antonio La Cantera resort for the weekend. We spent most of our time by the pool, but as avid hikers, we couldn’t resist checking out their little hiking trail. It was an easy trail, about a mile long, and the chance for all sorts of adventure presented itself.
We passed signs that talked about rattlers, skunks, wild pigs, and more. We didn’t see any of those, nor were we really looking for them. What we wanted to find was a red Cardinal that was much more common around those parts. Noah kept very vigilant watch for it.
We searched and searched but saw no wildlife (unless you count all the butterflies). But it didn’t matter. A little hike away from it all was perfect for that moment. And it made us just hot enough that another dip in the Lost Quarry pool became mandatory.
