    McKinney Falls State Park - Hike Loop - I love loop trails, but I was sad to find out that this one was paved a lot of the way. It was relatively empty, however, and quite peaceful. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I was excited to see all the cacti!

    McKinney Falls State Park - There are actually 2 waterfalls at McKinner Falls State Park. I found it on the Austin.citysearch web site, and, based on the reviews, I have to believe that this amount of water isn't always flowing. I was here in January, and, as you can see, there was plenty of water. This is the upper falls.

    Enchanted Rock.
    I call it 'the Texan Ayers Rock'
    A strange geological rocks formation in the middle of a forest, where nobody would expect it. Some people climb it with sophisticated equipment, but you can also just walk on top of it.
