The bluebonnet flowers are so delicate and beautiful!

I enjoyed a drive in the Texas hill country and went on a drive from Austin to Marble Falls. I especially enjoyed the spring flowers! The bluebonnet flowers in Texas are quite famous and I loved taking photos of them in different locations. It is tricky to take flower photos on a windy day, but I still had a wonderful time!

Hike in Austin

Austin-1

It was spectacular where the water flowed next to the trail!

Austin-10

There were beautiful spring flowers along the trail.

 

John and I went on a wonderful hike in Austin. It was a nature trail on the outskirts of the city. We hiked a total of 6 miles through a beautiful area. Someone went through quite a bit of effort to create steps through many sections of the trail. It was great exercise for my legs!

Austin-3

The trail was extremely well maintained and it provided excellent exercise!

We also enjoyed seeing some of the spring flowers and a pond at the end had quite a few turtles swimming around. I loved the section with running water next to the trail.

There were quite a few turtles swimming around in the pond at the end of the trail.

Today was a beautiful day to go on a hike in the Wildcat Bluff Nature Center! The temperature was in the 70s with hardly any wind. It was a gorgeous day!

This lizard patiently waited and posed for his photo!

The unexpected delight was finding a lizard on the top of a post. He patiently waited as I zoomed in and focused on his scales.

I enjoyed taking my camera and it was fun to focus on many of the small flowers opening up for springtime. I need to return and hike on more of the different trails.
