We love Austin Texas . . .

 

last Friday we pulled into Austin TX. . .

Round Rock TX

well really. . .Round Rock TX, named after this round rock in Brushy Creek,

which had become a landmark along the Chisholm Trail during cattle drive days. . .

you know. . .as in, cross the creek at the Round Rock. . .LOL!

Supposedly, the wagon grooves can still be see in the bedrock of the creek. . .

we have never been when the creek is down low enough, but would love to see those!

the little park where the “round rock” is located is a lovely place for a picnic. . .

the historic downtown area is also worth exploring. . .

and the next town over. . .Georgetown. . .is beautiful as well. . .

we’ve stayed in so many different RV Parks in the Austin area. . .

but we always seem to return to The Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock. . .

FHU – 50A – pull through – $23. . .quiet and convenient. . .

nothing spectacular, but we love it!

and then on Monday morning, we made tracks for our favorite Thousand Trails Park

on the Colorado River in Columbus Texas. . .

Debi and Ed Hurlburt rolled in right behind us. . .

eating, visiting, and watching the deer. . .that’s what we’ve been doing all week. . .

it’s been great!

 

See you next time in Conroe. . .

til then,

Janice and Dave
