We visited a small preserve in Westlaco, but it was closed as it was after 5..they had a nice little pond near the visitor center and as we approached, Turtles came out of the pond towards us! We ran…LOL

Warbler Vista

One of the Best Views in Travis County in my Opinion….Warbler Vista Overlooks Lake Travis, and our main surface water source in the county..

One of my Favorite trails.. its very short, maybe 3 miles total..but the views of Lake Travis are very impressive. As you can see we do have some water in the lake this year, which is good as it has been dry for a couple of months now..

The Indian Meadows area offers the best part of hiking…the Solitude..its quiet, a long way from major highways and its pretty far from Austin…so not a ton of folks out there…
