The Hamilton Greenbelt in Lakeway is a pleasant place to hike. I went in maybe two miles, got turned around, and then followed the sun on the way back to the trailhead. I’m looking forward to exploring this area further.
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.
I have returned to my new favorite pastime for beating the afternoon Summer heat in Austin. Yes, hiking in another section of Bull Creek. The water is clear and cool and typically no more than waist deep. However, there are a few swimming holes to enjoy if you like. The fish are both curious and friendly too. 🙂
This evening, instead of hiking the trail alongside Bull Creek, I waded my way upstream from Bull Creek District Park. It was a lot of fun and the water was beautiful thanks to all the rains we have experienced this year in Austin. I need to take more hikes like this in the near future. 🙂
