Summers in Texas extend deep into September, even October. Months after the longest day, the ground continues to absorb and radiate heat.

Trapped in our air-conditioned caves for too long, we need relief! Here is a selection of nature places to go green while cooling off.  

• Last year, the U.S. Forest Service locked the gate to significant areas of Lake Fannin Park, a wilderness gem on the Red River

• As a result, volunteers who restored the historic park have been unable to continue.

• Efforts are underway to transfer the land to county control.
