Yes, it is another walk on one of the trails here in Lakeway. The map gives you an idea of extensive the trails are. We are only going to take one today.
Notice the distinct desert feel to the geography. There are a couple of Peacock orchid plants and a few grasses in this bed.
There’s a signpost up ahead. Friends of the park have several projects around Lakeway.

Another view showing some prickly pear cactus on the right.
Big power lines that run next to the trail.
The everpresent rescue marker so one knows where they are and can tell emergency responders their location.
More cactus. About the only thing green other than the cedars.
