Leon Valley (San Antonio) – 03/25/17

Part of the walk was in the Huebner-Onion Natural Area, which is a 36 acre green space which lies across Huebner Creek.  The Leon Valley Historical Society has constructed primitive trails with signage of flora and fauna so that this area may be used for educational experiences, animal, birding, insect and plant identification.  Our walk registration was in Raymond Rimkus Park which abuts the Natural Area.

We reached the 5K turn around and paused for a drink before turning back.

When we completed the wilderness loop, our walk took us out into a residential area.

Just a sample of the houses we saw there.

These home owners are saving water by having a gravel lawn.

The walk continued through the park and back out into another residential area to visit a cemetery.
