Brook Hollow in Reverse Order - Sat., June 29

I was out the door early this morning for an AVA-sponsored Volksmarch. Because Texas is so hot at this time of year, it is de rigeur to walk or hike early. I signed in and started the walk at 7:30 a.m. The temperature was 79 degrees.

Since this is my go-to walk when walking alone, it was nice to have the sponsor's start/finish table with ice water provided. The walk today was set up to go in the opposite direction from the way I am used to walking so I saw the route from a different perspective. It took me one hour and 35 minutes to walk 10K (6.2 miles). Pretty good.

I took a few photos along the way...

Other than the walk, I have blogged, vacuumed, and done laundry. Next on today's agenda is dinner, followed by a Missions baseball game, fireworks, and some live music and beer, maybe dancing, at Random event center in Boerne, Texas.

Tomorrow, another early walk, then take the rest of the day off!!!!

  1. Wow! You really are a walker. And a photographer. Beautiful pictures. When do you find the time to play your games with me? You are an amazing woman. I love your header picture.

  2. Great time especially with a few photos and heat thrown in! Way to strut your stuff!!!

  3. Beautiful photos. I miss the crape myrtles now that I live in Kansas. We can grow certain varieties but they die back each year. They do come back but start at ground level so they appear more as tall bushes.
