Emma Long Park - Austin, TX

Sunday, September 28, 2014

We walked the Turkey Creek Trail which is a lollipop: an out and back trail with a loop at the end. It was misting rain when we first started so the trail was a little muddy. Here are some pictures from the 3 mile hike.

It looks like a really nice trail to walk!
The trails in our neighborhood (one going through my yard) are a tarred path around people's homes and yards. There are some out in the country we can go to but again tarred. emoticon

Shoreaces 10K

Sunday, September 21, 2014

Shoreacres is a small community south of LaPorte right on the Gulf of Mexico. It is home to the Houston Yacht Club which the walk included.

We saw lots of sailboats out. Lined up like they were racing.

Walk included a small park. Liked the carving at the entrance.

Walked lots of residential streets but this historic home was my favorite.

It was 94 and very humid, but it was good to visit the Gulf for a few hours.

    When I was married we had a catamaran. It was fun as long as we didn't go up on the pontoons.

Waco - Baylor Stadium

Sunday, September 14, 2014

We stayed home last weekend and walked in Waco. We were attempting to map out a new volksmarching route. We thought the riverwalk was open but it still had some construction barriers up at the I-35 underpass. But we made it to the stadium so here are a some pictures from that area.

Pedestrian Bridge over the Brazos.

Junction 10K

Thursday, September 11, 2014

We started out early to beat the heat so we got to see the sun rise over the Llano river.

The walk crossed the river on this bridge.

There weren't any fancy historical homes or churches on this walk. There was this nice antler Christmas Tree.

This is the County Courthouse


South Llano State Park

This 11K volksmarch was made up of two loops. The first loop was on the Buck Lake trail.

It was mostly level and had lots of shade. The second loop was on the Fawn Trail and it was rocky and had lots of hills.

This is looking back at the way we'd come to give you an idea of the climb involved. We had a great time however and after the walk we spent some time wading in the river.
