Exploring Town Lake in Austin, TX
One of the main reasons my husband and I decided to become team truck drivers is that we wanted to travel. That’s the whole reason we decided to get an RV. We realized that we could not drive cross country every day if we weren’t getting paid for it, because fuel is really expensive. That’s when we decided to head to truck driving school. After we finished trucking school they had us drive individually with a mentor.
This is a picture of me in front of my mentor’s truck that I trained in. She was from Austin, TX so during home time we spent a few days there. I stayed in a hotel room while she spent time with her family. I also had the chance to explore the area.
I found a walking trail around Town Lake and it was beautiful! There were people kayaking on the lake, people jogging around the lake, and others just sitting soaking in the sun. There were lots of families there too.
I wish I liked exercising more than I did and I am pretty sure I could like it even more if I had a trail like this one. I’d see it more as fun then exercising.
Even the wildlife was enjoying the day and the lake.
I love the architecture and the views as I walked. There was the serene lake with the industrial bridge going across and the sleek city backdrop.
In fact, I had such a great day that I went back the following day too. I think I got more exercise in those three days then I did that whole month. Fortunately the weather was beautiful too which made the day even better. If you’re ever in Austin, TX I highly recommend checking this spot out. Have you been to Austin, TX? Do you have any favorite spots there?

Wow…so gorgeous. Bet all the rain has this area flooding right now. Sending prayers to those that are affected.

I love Austin! I don’t think we ever went to this lake while we were there but we sure did plenty of other things to “keep it weird”. Great post, Donna!

Austin is so beautiful. We had some family there so we’d visit occasionally growing up. I remember the lakes, seeing the bats, and a cool cold spring we went swimming in and breakfast burritos!
