Thinking of climbing up Enchanted Rock? Dreaming about sticking your toes in the Pedernales River? Hankering to hike among red and gold leaves at Lost Maples State Park?

Head to any Texas State Park on Sunday, the day after Veterans Day, when entrance fees for all visitors will be waived. Camping and other activity fees will still apply.

And the weather looks good. Rain should clear out after Wednesday, according to weather reports, and forecasts call for highs in the mid-70s on Sunday, with a chance for scattered showers.
