Mt. Bonnell 8/27/14

This wasn’t really a hike, but I’m adding it here anyway.  I took Biff to the top of Mt. Bonnell this morning for some views of Austin in the morning light.  It was pretty peaceful even though the temperature was creeping up steadily.  It was a bit hazy, but still great views.  Some of the pics are a little blurry as I was having to hold onto Biff and handle the camera at the same time.

I had to carry Biff up the initial stairs because of his back, but he did great on the short trail, which is only a couple of hundred yards.  It was a nice morning walk and will probably be even better on a cool fall morning.
