A scenic drive to Lost Maples State Park. We will meet at the CVS Drug store parking lot at 12980 Bandera Road at 12:45 pm.  The CVS is on Bandera Rd.  just outside Loop 1604. At 1 pm we will leave the CVS and head northwest on HWY 16 to the town of Bandera and then on to Medina.  In Medina, we will pick up 337 to Vanderpool, Texas.  Then take 187 out of Vanderpool to the Lost Maples Park area.  When we arrive at the Lost Maples Mart near the park we will do a Pit Stop for 15-20 minutes.  We are not going to drive through the State Park but if anyone is interested in a hike in the woods you can break away from the group and go into the park.  Please remember if you do decide to go to the park and hike or camp you will need to make reservations in advance.  THE SECTION WILL NOT BE MAKING RESERVATIONS for you!!!  If you are interested in hiking in the park, you can get the reservation information to do that here: Lost Maples Park. The rest of us will continue on 187 until we meet 39.  We will turn right on 39 and follow the Guadalupe River into Ingram and then pick up 27.  Both 39 and 27 follow the river and affords some spectacular views.  Once we get to Kerrville we will take 16 to I-10 and then home.  Once in Kerrville, the journey ends.  You can take Interstate 10 home to Boerne or San Antonio or choose other routes to home as desired.    Hope to see you on the 26th for another scenic drive...
