Highest point in Austin, TX. A twisting and winding drive-up followed by a hot and humid climb up a set of stairs to summit this beast.

Signage at the parking area...


Looking back down the stairs...


The summit...


View of Austin...


The other Colorado River...

But seriously Guadalupe Peak 8750' looks interesting, but tame.

If there were a mountain in Texas, it would likely be torn down and sold.

But its not 100% bad either. Sailing on the Brazos(thats the river pictured)  Very Happy

Decent Texas stuff(not so far from Austin):

I see your hiking has taken you to new, um, heights.   Laughing

Austin's a cool town, but you can keep the humidity.   Sad

Where the heck is the Brazos that clear and narrow? This is the Brazos I'm used to seeing...

Yeah, that picture doesn't look like the Brazos River I marched to back when I was at Texas A&M.  Looks like a nice spot.
