Copperfield Nature Trail

IMG_3683

The Copperfield Nature Trail is about 3.5 miles of trail that runs along Walnut Creek on the East side of I35 in Austin.  I started from Copperfield Park, and followed the trail as it bends along the Creek side.  This trail is embedded in a few neighborhoods, so expect some street noise as you hike.  This makes for a nice walk after work and before the sun sets.

Oh my!  This field was so beautiful!  I tiptoed around the edges, making sure not to squash any wildflowers.  When I found a plant that was photo worthy, I dropped to the ground and put my little camera to work, getting grass stains on my knees.  No flowers were harmed during the process.  Then the sun began to fall in behind everything as the breezes started to die down.  Bluebonnets are groovy, but the Indian Paintbrushes in this field were the best. Not to mention the friendly ladybug.  🙂
