Wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country: Visit Fredericksburg TX
The Texas Hill Country is known for its wildflowers.
Typically you'll see our state flower—the bluebonnet—from late March through the second week of April. But Mother Nature determines the exact dates each year.
By late April, the blues fade like a favorite pair of jeans, but you'll still see color. Yellows, reds, pinks, purples and whites. Texas wildflowers bloom well into May and early June around Fredericksburg and Gillespie County.
Fall in the Texas Hill Country is our second wildflower season of the year. In September and October, it is easy to spot bright-colored blooms that come close to rivaling our spring displays. From yellow sunflowers to purple gayfeathers.
No matter what time of year you visit, a great place to see our wildflowers is right here at Wildseed Farms on Highway 290, seven miles east of Fredericksburg. Wildseed Farms is the nation's largest working wildflower farm.
Here, you can purchase wildflower seed mixes that will grow in your region of the United States—no matter where you live, along with blooming plants from the nursery and gift items from the boutique. Plus, the Biergarten makes for a great stop for a light lunch, complete with Texas wine and beer.
Other great places to see wildflowers include the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site in Stonewall, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area north of Fredericksburg, the Live Oak Wilderness Trail at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park off Highway 16 South and even along our roadways.
So, come hike or drive in the cooler spring and autumn temperatures in the Texas Hill Country and enjoy our wildflowers. And don't forget your camera.
Boondocking in Small Town America Van Life On the Road
An overnight in a small Texas town. My name is Brian. I live on the road full time in my self built camper van. Join me on my adventures. In this video I leave my camp at Turner Falls Park in Davis, Oklahoma. I drive a few hours to a small town in Texas called Holliday. I find a place called Stonewall Jackson Camp #249 and decide to try to sleep there over night. I found this camp on There was no information on the site so I thought I'd give it a try. A couple traveling in a small van showed up to camp there also so it gave me a little confidence. I though I might get a knock from the police when a car rolled in early morning but they drove off after a minute. Got a chance to fly the drone there. Thanks for watching!

Bride Killed in Helicopter Crash (Warning: Distressing Footage)
Warning: This is a distressing video. A video has been released showing a helicopter crash that killed four people on board a helicopter en-route to a wedding (December, 2016). The 32-year-old bride, Rosemere do Nascimento, had planned to surprise her fiancé Udirley Damasceno, who was waiting at the altar when the chopper crash landed a mile from the reception venue in a rural area on the outskirts of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
While it's *generally* unfair to speculate, the R44 piston machine was in what clearly appears to be IMC. Watch what happens to the aggressive bank around the 1:42 min mark before control is lost. It was careless flying.
All occupants (including a pregnant photopgrapher, Nayla Cristina Neves) were killed.
Manassas, Virginia, USA
My visit at Manassas National Battlefield Park, Virginia, on the 13th of September, 2015. I remember I had some problems in driving from one place to the another, due to the not so clear road signs but the place is fantastic.
The so called Manassas Campaign was a series of military engagements in the Eastern Theater of the American Civil War: Hoke's Run, Blackburn's Ford, First Bull Run (Manassas) and Second Bull Run (Manassas).
At First Bull Run (Manassas) Thomas Jonathan Jackson, Confederate Brigadier General, rose to prominence and earned his most famous nickname Stonewall. After the battle, Jackson was promoted to Major General.
Visita al Manassas National Battlefield Park, Virginia, il 13 settembre 2015. Mi ricordo che ho avuto qualche problema nel guidare da un posto all'altro del campo di battaglia, a causa dei segnali stradali non chiari, ma il posto è fantastico.
La cosiddetta Campagna di Manassas è stata una serie di diverse battaglie combattute nel teatro orientale della Guerra Civile Americana: Hoke's Run, Blackburn's Ford, First Bull Run (Manassas) and Second Bull Run (Manassas).
Durante la Prima Battaglia di Bull Run (Manassas) salì alla ribalta Thomas Jonathan Jackson, brigadier generale confederato, che lì acquisì il suo famoso soprannome muro di pietra. Dopo la battaglia, Jackson fu promosso maggior generale.

Why a field of flags?
There is no other program like the Healing Field® flag memorial. A Healing Field® event is a community event, charitable fund raiser, awareness program and an amazing and unifying experience for all involved. A field of flags conveys a powerful message. What started out as a way to commemorate the lives of those lost to us on September 11, 2001, has grown into something more. Communities across America are turning to Healing Field® flag memorials to raise money and awareness for a growing array of causes. BACODA the Bay Area Council on Drugs & Alcohols Healing Field® event will honor those lost to alcohol-related motor vehicle fatalities in the State of Texas in one year. Acres of red, white and blue will stand eight feet tall in perfect rows similar to those in Arlington Cemetery. The 3 x 5 flags will stand as a temporary memorial but will make a lasting impression on those who stand before them.

ONE FLAG? ONE LIFE!
American Flag Healing Field® To Memorialize Over 1,600 Victims of Drinking and Driving on Texas Roads
CLEAR LAKE On November 10-13, 2009, the Bay Area Council on Drugs and Alcohol (BACODA) will host a Healing Field® event at Walter Hall Park to draw awareness to over 1,600 Texas alcohol-related traffic fatalities in 2008.
We want this event to raise awareness of the enormity of the problem. Awareness builds strength in a community ? a strength that can bring about social change, said Karen Van Horne, CEO of the Bay Area Council on Drugs and Alcohol.
A 3 x 5-foot American flag will stand as a memorial for each life lost last year. The acres of red, white and blue will serve as a visual reminder of the deadly consequences of drinking and driving.
These tragedies are preventable through communication, education and action. More than 1,600 lives were lost in 2008 to drunk driving in Texas and countless families and friends have been impacted for life ? it doesnt have to be this way. By joining forces with community organizations and leadership, such as BACODA, we can make a difference. I applaud their leadership and initiative in tackling this problem, said Alan Steen, administrator of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
The Bay Area Council on Drugs and Alcohol sponsors this free event in partnership with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Galveston County Judge Yarbrough, Department of State Health Services, Sam Houston Area Council-Boy Scouts of America, Houston-Galveston Area Council and Texas National Guard. Attendees will be able to participate in family-oriented prevention activities, purchase memorial flags, and, most importantly ? people can pledge to end the unacceptable and preventable tragedies caused by drinking and driving.
Rain or shine, the event will be held in League City at Walter Hall Park, 807 Highway 3 S., located south of West Nasa Road 1, and just north of Main St in League City. Opening Ceremonies will be held on November 10th with speakers, families, placing flags for loved ones lost and other activities.
The Healing Field® started as a temporary, visual memorial for the victims of Sept. 11, 2001, and has evolved into commemorative events for other causes. BACODA helps individuals, families and communities stop alcohol and drug abuse through awareness, education, intervention and referral. The nonprofit organization works with schools in Brazoria, Matagorda, Galveston and southeast Harris Counties.
For more information about BACODA and the Healing Field® event please contact the BACODA office at 281.212.2900 or visit bacoda.org. Contact: Kari Stadler, firstname.lastname@example.org
