Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018
LaNana Creek Trail, Nacogdoches. It’s no substitute for the hike to Fragrance Lake up above Chuckanut Bay where I’ve spent dozens of Easter Sundays over the last years, but it was a great walk just the same. Beginning at Main Street the trail follows an old track used by the Caddo Indians along LaNana Creek for 3.5 miles ending at the arboretum of Stephen F. Austin University. The faint sounds of traffic in the distance and the faint smell of Easter barbecues are the only indications that I’m not in the deep woods somewhere. I like this town.
