After a not so restful night of sleep at the American Motel (for me at least,) we got started early and made our way to Bandera, TX.  We were actually staying in Boerne, TX but we couldn't check into our cabin until 3:00, so we decided to go to the Texas Hill Country State Natural Area to do a little mountain biking.  (We have had mountain bikes for about a year now, neither of them ever coming close to riding on anything resembling a mountain.)  The state park was beautiful and was pretty much empty of people.  We only saw 2 hikers and 5 people on horseback the entire time were were out there.  So the only bad thing was that it has been raining alot lately and most of the biking trails were closed.  Except for one.  The hard one.  It couldn't be that bad, right?  The first part of the trail had some pretty steep sections, all covered in loose rock.  I managed to crash 5 times, but Rick has more skill and he didn't eat it like I did.  It was a great ride, but my fanny was pretty bruised when it was all over.  I'd definately go back, and try the easier trails!

We were pretty tired after our ride and a juicy burger in Bandera, so we drove back to Boerne to check into our cabin.  We stayed at McClure's Bed and Breakfast, and were had our own private cabin.  It was definately an improvement over our previous night's room.  The cabin was built in 1901, and the McClures restored it.  I forgot to take pictures of the inside, but it was very cozy (definately decorated very country/cottage girly.  Alot of pink, lace, and flowers.  Probably to Rick's dismay.)  We had a little living room, a kitchen and a small bedroom with a king size bed.  After a hard day of biking, we weren't good for much.  We had a nice dinner in town at The Creek, walked along the water at the park, and went back to the cabin and got a good night's sleep.
