- More photos from beautiful Austin:
From the 22nd floor of the apartment building where we stayed we could see five buildings in various stages of construction and it was so fascinating. I often would turn on the TV and then stand at the window with my back to it looking at what was going on down below. One of them was going to be the highest building west of the Mississippi and when finished it will block the view of the State Capitol building of those from nx??our building. Luckily, there is an old power plant on the other side which is historic and so it won’t be torn down and replaced with something to block the view of Town Lake.
Another stunning sunrise reflected on the side of a building down town.
You can see part of the old power plant lit up at night through the window of a bar and grill.
Stevie Ray Vaughan is a deceased singer famous especially in Austin. They were having live music and firworks on Town Lake for New Year’s Eve and we went over to have a look. The statue had fog and all sorts of lights to give it this super look.
