Austin Texas in the Shade

Austin, Texas

From the shores of Lady Bird Lake and alongside the Zilker Park Hike and Bike Trail, the high rises of downtown Austin can be seen. The view of the skyline can be enjoyed from nearly any point on this walkway, and the flow of the river (Lady Bird Lake) makes a nice foreground. In this image, the water level is much higher thanks to the Mansfield dam that was open much further upstream. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
