We say good-bye today to our State Park Guide, Bryan Frazier, who accepted a new job as Travel Director with the Texas Department of Transportation. If ever you thought Bryan’s love of parks was for the radio only, you didn’t know Bryan.

56 –Being outdoors has always been, since childhood, a meaningful experience. No building or structure can rival what nature has. And, the things that we have in nature are not only unique, they’re irreplaceable. And the time spent outdoors is time well spent. I love hiking, wildlife watching, and I especially love fishing. So, it’s all of those things, and then I have a reference point that it was done with my family when I was a child. So, the time is not only something I enjoy doing, but it’s nostalgic, too, I think of times with my dad and my brother when I was a small child, and how much fun it was, and the lessons learned, and the conversations had — all while outdoors. So, you take that whole package; it does something to the human soul…being outdoors… like nothing else can.

Thanks, for everything, Bryan. And good luck!

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
