Road Trippers: Journey to Gruene

Bastrop is a city just about 7000 people. It's best known for its state park, which was ravaged in the state's worst wildfire ever, back in 2011.

"You see the devastation of the fire and you also see the renewal of the pines," Ngozi said. "It's just really powerful. It says something about the Earth."

But, for Pooja and Steve, the best part of Bastrop was its Historic Chicken Sanctuary. The one block of Farm Street is protected by law, so feral chickens roam freely.

"They start about 3 o'clock in the morning," laughed resident Shay Clawson. "No, you don't sleep in around here. They're loud."
