River Place Again

Mid 60s, sunny, and beautiful

Just under 7 miles

 

Well, I did say this was the best trail in Austin, so I’ve been out here a lot lately.  I especially wanted to come out because we got some good rain the past week, so the waterfalls should all have been up, and they were beautiful.

I don’t take Biff here because there are SO many steps, so I’d just carry him most of the way.  It’s a tiring trail, especially hiking it solo when I tend to pick up the pace a bit anyway.  I specifically tried to pace myself today and stop to smell the roses and enjoy the beauty.  It was very pretty as always and also crowded.

My gaiters were the talk of the trail for some reason today.  I must have gotten at least 7 different comments and compliments on them.  Dirty Girls for the win!  Anyway, I’ve blogged this multiple times, so I’ll let the pictures do the rest.
