Loving Sunset Walks

IMG_3934

It is that time of year in Austin where the evenings start getting cooler and it makes it nice to get out and walk.  This evening, I started at Ninth and Congress and headed for the loop around Town Lake.  There were a few art installations and groovy flowers along the way.  On my return to Congress Avenue, there was a flock of tourists anxiously awaiting the bats to begin flying out from under the bridge.  And of course, the sunset colors on the city were most beautiful.

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.
