Twin Falls – Texas

Obviously, the main attraction to Perdernales Falls State Park is Perdernales Falls.  If it wasn’t then the state park would be grossly miss named.  But do not overlook the short hike to Twin Falls.  It is a small waterfall.  Though it has its merits.  One being waterfalls are few and far between in the Plains.  …
