One of our favorite things to do in Austin is walk around what is called Town Lake which is actually part of a dammed up river, done to control flooding. I see that they have renamed it Lady Bird Lake, the wife of President Johnson years back, but it will always be Town Lake to us. They had horrible flooding in Austin and the surrounding area a few months ago but it hasn’t rained since and the trail is very dusty, coating my dark running shoes when I walk there. I love being there early in the morning when the light is good.
