colorado river austin
This is the beautiful Colorado River that runs through Austin, the state capitol of Texas. This was the only day that the weather was good enough to take any photos in the city. We had two days of torrential rain, much needed, and flash floods that meant we could not travel far or go outside – not much of a vacation, eh? Austin is a beautiful city with a hip, liberal vibe that doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the state. Their slogan is ‘Keep Austin Weird’ and they have succeeded. On this visit we were in the north west of the city in the Arboretum district but most of this post is about Austin Zoo and some lovely little places on the route between Houston and Austin. Enjoy the journey as much as the destination! Click on the red link for a surprising postcard. POSTCARD FROM AUSTIN click here
