Not all of the trails are Sun baked. A good portion are shielded by ample Oaks and Cedar.

Coppertone and I made a brief visit back to Austin to check on my Dad and decided to log a quick stroll at a park we'd not previously hiked.  Actually, Coppertone had been here before for some geocaching, but not to log a hike.

We parked at a nearby office that didn't look like they had 24 hour security like Apple and did what amounts to the outer loop of the park.  It was starting to get a bit warm and didn't want to get too sweaty given our other stops today, so this small loop was all we managed to get in.

Thankfully, the maintainers of the park mowed down a good width of grass over most of the trail, which saved us from too much of a chigger risk.  Coppertone is pretty sure she still got one of them here though.  Reminders of our previous home!
