Posts From The Road: Tyler State Park In Texas

Mist Fog: On the afternoon of our arrival, the weather was misty and foggy. It was not conducive to many outdoor activities but did create some interesting photos around the lake. Fortunately for us the weather cleared overnight and we woke up to sunny skies the next morning. Photo by Gary Warren/

Tyler State Park is a state park in Texas located about 100 miles east of Dallas near the town of Tyler.
The centerpiece of the park is a small lake, which provides fishing and many other water activities.
Miles of hiking and biking trails are available in addition to the lake activities.
Editor’s note: Longtime Los Alamos photographer Gary Warren and his wife Marilyn are traveling around the country and he shares his photographs, which appear in the ‘Posts from the Road’ series published in the Sunday edition of the Los Alamos Daily Post.
Campground: There are many campsites near the lake which make for a nice view. There is camping for RVs as well as tent camping and a nice day use area for picnics. Photo by Gary Warren/


Afternoon Breezes: Breezes in the late afternoon create ripples on the lake as the sunlight begins to fade into sunset. Photo by Gary Warren/
Sunset: After the sunset, the winds calmed and the lake became as smooth as glass. The colors of sunset filled the skies and reflected in the lake which created a great photo opportunity. Photo by Gary Warren/
