Our Pad in the Winter

Winter in Austin is like fall in most parts of the country. While we like to kill invasive species, this outlaw tree in our front yard does provide some nice color on a December morning..

Seaholm

The rehabilitation of the Seaholm power plant in Downtown Austin has made a very cool place right on Lady bird lake.. wandering around the plant is neat because of all the old huge structures!

Downtown

I have been riding my new E- Mountain bike a lot lately, its really fun and easy to ride, and it allows for longer rides as the pedal assist technology multiplies the effort put into biking. Here are a few shots of a beautiful Saturday, just roaming around downtown!

The Aids Walk was on as I rode by on Congress Ave

 

This is over by the Farmers Market at Republic Square

 

Our new Public Library

 

A little better look at the Public Library, all new and over near the Seaholm Power plan rehabilitation

Poquito Creek to Town Lake

Another Urban ride on my KTM took me from 38th down around the east side near Boggy creek to Poquito Creek and then down to town lake… Great ride! 

Town Lake, or as it is now known as, Lady Bird Lake

 

On the East side, its so cool to find natural pathways in the heart of the city

I took a spin down Waller creek and back up Shoal Creek, it sounds like its out there in the wilds, but both creeks Cut through the heart of Downtown…

Looking south

 

The Capital was close

 

The Pride Parade was setting up on a side street by the capital

 

I rode up to the top of a parking garage to snap a few shots
