Today we rode 77 miles, some of it in the rain, all of it without any headwinds (or crosswinds either, for that matter), but much of it in some very hilly terrain. The hills of Texas Hill Country definitely made the ride very challenging. I took two videos and half a dozen photos, which I provide below for your entertainment. Ok, it won’t be as entertaining as Beth’s blog will be, but hopefully you’ll enjoy my post nonetheless. 🙂
It’s a good thing Tim likes figuring out maps or we’d ever get anywhere on this trip! 🙂
Halloween is really big here in the Texas Hill Country, but I can’t imagine kids walking from ranch to ranch to go trick or treating…..
We made it to Waring, TX just in time for lunch, which we ate across the street from the Waring General Store. If you looks closely just to the right of the front door, you can see the Fallout Shelter sign. I can’t imagine how the General Store would have been any better in a nuclear attack than your own house in Waring, but who knows?
“Objects in the camera lens are much closer than they appear.” But don’t worry, there was a fence between me and the bull, which was just outside of Waring, TX.
It’s always great meeting up with Beth and Ginger. They met up with us along TX Ranch Road 473, about 14 miles or so from our hotel in Blanco.
Once we made it to our Best Western Hotel in Blanco, we did a wash and then went into town for a nice dinner. Tomorrow we bike to Kyle and then we’re going to drive into Austin and visit the LBJ Presidential Museum and Library on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Looking forward to that!
