I am absolutely crazy about Austin. One of my favorite things, which I don’t do nearly enough, is walking a big oval around Town Lake, the wide part of the Colorado River that runs along downtown.
I take the kids to school, going north on Mopac and then into town. After dropping them off, I go back to Mopac, and park under the south-bound lanes.
The pedestrian bridge is right under the highway bridge. I usually take it across to the south side of Lake Austin, and take a bridge further east back across, and then walk back to the car along the north side.
You can click on the photos to see them bigger.
Lake Austin looking west. What a drab photo, you think. Couldn’t she have taken that picture with a blue sky? NO! After two years of drought, this is a beautiful sight. (The two dots on the river are skiffs.)
That’s all, folks! We’re back where we began.
