August Magazine Preview

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

The August issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine is on newsstands later this month. And Associate Publisher, Charles Lohrmann, gives us a preview.

Well, by the time August rolls around, everyone is ready to get away – even for a couple of days. And with that in mind, we have an article by Melissa Gaskell about the best cabins in state parks.

And we have some really great cabins in our state parks. One example close to Austin is the 1930s log cabins built by the CCC in Bastrop State Park. And there are more CCC cabins at Lake Brownwood State Park, and then, in the Panhandle – Palo Duro – there are cabins overlooking the grand canyon of Texas.

And, of course, August is also a good time to indulge that childhood fantasy of building a boat. And, we have an article with photographs from Scott Summerlott, for a step–by-step process for building a skiff. So it [the August issue of the magazine] will take you out of the summer and into the fall.

Thank you, Charles.

[By the way, this is Charles Lohrmann’s final magazine preview for Passport to Texas. He accepted the position of editor at Texas Highways Magazine. We’ve really enjoyed working with Charles over the past several years, and will miss him greatly. Meantime, we wish him well in this new position.]
