Passport to Texas Outdoor Stories from Texas Parks and Wildlife
It’s a rare individual who – once introduced to the outdoors at a young age — fails to continue their relationship with nature long into adulthood.
Lisa Korth is no exception. She’s education coordinator for the Freshwater Resources Center in San Marcos. With a lifetime of outdoor adventures to draw from, she’s chosen a more recent memory to share with us today.
Well, I grew up around water, and one of my favorite memories is a recent memory: snorkeling in the San Marcos River. It’s one of my favorite places to snorkel because the clarity of the water is just so magnificent. It’s just really clean and pristine. And, when you snorkel, it’s like being in another world.
And just being under water and getting an up close view of that underwater world is just really magical. A friend of mine recently compared it to riding a roller coaster. And I agree. Just that exhilarating feeling of being in the water….pushing you downstream…seeing all of the plants and fish. It’s just really, really amazing.
