Comments: On Tuesday, we adopted our new dog, Zoey, and on Wednesday, decided to test her mettle with a 3.5 hour hike. The verdict: she loved every step of it, and so did we. The vistas, especially Meditation Point, offer spectacular views of the Colorado River and its surrounding landscape. We also visited the Large Pecan Tree which appeared to live up to its name. 200 years old - goodness gracious. Recent rains left the trails quite muddy, but the scenery was so lovely that we hardly gave it a second thought. The mud offered some easily identifiable tracks, although the only wildlife we saw were hawks lazily sailing overhead. The dog's a keeper, and so is this beautiful LCRA park.
