For three Tuesdays in a row, the Randolph Roadrunners Volksmarch Club held three different walks in Boerne, Texas. I met my friend, Susan, and we headed out a little earlier than the rest of the group because I had an appointment to get to on the other side of town when we finished.
The weather was pleasant and off we went. The rails to trails path was under construction for most of its length. We walked on the grass to the side of it. When we got to a big intersection, it too was under construction. We felt like we were taking our lives in our hands to get across it.
Once we made it past the intersection and into Cibolo Nature Park, all construction was forgotten until our return trip. Wildflowers, birds, fields, creek and wetland welcomed us.

As I was driving back to San Antonio, there was a tie-up on I-10 due to miles of road construction. I was able to get some awesome photos of wildflowers along the freeway median.
I made it to my appointment on time.
