Davy Crockett State Park

We visited the Davy Crockett State Park this weekend. Davy Crockett was the "Spirit of the Frontier." He is usually pictured with his raccoon hat, known for being an Indian fighter and hunter, but he also fought in the Alamo for the independence of Texas from Mexico and died a hero. So they have a monument for Davy Crockett's birthplace and a state park named after him. There was a covered bridge, some little waterfalls and the kids told me that they could see the fish swimming in the little river. I never could see any but they assured me they were there. There were trails to hike and even though most of the leaves were on the ground rather than the trees, it was an enjoyable hike through the woods on a warm autumn day.
