Nature can be as close as the back yard.. the key is to walk out the door and have a look around..

Town Lake Trail

August 19, 2014  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Town Lake Trail

Actually called the Lady Bird lake trail..its affectionately known as the Town lake trail.. this heads from Mopac expressway to longhorn dam in about a 10 miles loop. They recently completed a new boardwalk over the water keeping the entire trail in and around the lake rather than up on the city streets for a bit..

Pedernales Horse trails

August 18, 2014  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Pedernales Horse trails

Pedernales State park has about 12-15 miles of Horse trails that are not really advertised.. most likely to keep the masses off..I walked them the other day.. some signs of drought and a bird blind way off the beaten path..
