McKinney Roughs 3/10/19

Overcast and cool

5.4 miles

One of our favorite hikes near Austin is at McKinney Roughs Nature Preserve. It is run by the LCRA and has gotten a lot more maintenance lately because they opened a zip line course that brings in more money, so that’s fun. We haven’t done the zip line yet, but I’m sure we will at some point.

Spring in Texas is starting to come out after a long and wet winter. It is still chilly in the mornings (mid 40s or so), but getting up into the 70s regularly during the days now. 100s are just around the corner I’m sure.

We took the main path down to the river and then followed the river north towards the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort before winding through some thicker woods. The greens are coming out nicely.

No pups in the bird blind!

Biff has started eating grass on hikes a lot. He doesn’t act any different or like he’s feeling bad, he just likes grass now. Thinks he’s a cow I guess.
