The view of Downtown Austin from the Travis County Expo Center at sunset is always beautiful. If you are there for an evening event, just stroll out to the back parking lot and enjoy.
Just beyond the town of Nelson, you can discover Nelson Ghost Town. This spot is a former Texaco gas station, just north of the Techatticup Mine which is open for tours. The signs at the Ghost Town ask you to check in at the store, but there wasn’t much activity when I visited. Just beyond the store and its artifacts, you can find a plane crash that has been previously used as a movie set. It is a beautiful spot for photos.
