A View of the Lake
Mt. Bonnell is a famous landmark in Austin. It is pretty peaceful and has good views of Lake Austin, which is actually the Colorado River. It is fun to climb the stairs to the top, and you get a good work out alone the way. From the top, one can see the lake and all the nice rich people houses. On the last day that I visited Mount Bonnell, the air was humid and smelled of rocks. When you walk down the path you can limestone rock, broken down and shining white. If you are lucky to go on a day with few people, you get to take pictures wherever you want.
