A new pedestrian bridge has been completed recently on the University of Texas campus. The Moody Pedestrian Bridge spans Dean Keaton Street and links the Communication Building with the Belo Center for New Media. It is a fun place to walk across and photograph at sunset.
I went to Bastrop after work today to do some exploring. I started along the banks of the Colorado River and then made my way up to the Colorado River Bridge. It was a beautiful day for a long walk and there were plenty of sights to see along the way.
As the sun began its early descent, I embarked down the hill below the North San Gabriel Dam. This is a nice, paved trail that takes you to the base of the Dam where the rushing water outlet allows the San Gabriel River to continue on its path through Georgetown. When the days are longer, I will return to explore more of this area.
I met some more friendly fish while hiking a different section of Bull Creek this afternoon. The scenery along this creek hike is beautiful. And as a bonus, if you get too hot, just immerse yourself in the nice, clear water to cool yourself off in the Texas Summer heat.
One of the best parts of summer around here is to float one of our beautiful rivers. I returned to the San Marcos River and rented my tube from Lions Club Tube Rental and River Shuttle Service. This trip is about an hour long float and ends at a set of rapids. Super fun!
