A few weeks ago after picking Cakes up from summer camp instead of heading straight home, we decided to go exploring in the Texas Hill Country! Like a lot of people, we usually take the fastest and most direct route whenever we’re in the car. We don’t spend nearly enough time getting to know all of the side streets in Lakeway and Austin surrounding Lake Travis.
We didn’t venture very far off our usual route but did see some interesting things along the way. One of our turns in Lakeway ended up being a dead end but had a pretty great view of Lake Travis. While the drought has effected all of Texas and other local lakes like Lake Austin below Lake Travis, to see just how much the water has receded in a large space like Lake Travis is so sad. It definitely makes me think twice about how much water our family consumes.
Do you ever go exploring down roads you haven’t driven before?
