New hiking for Lakeway

Coppertone sits in the shade for a moment while heading down to the canyon. The first part of the trail gently descends to the canyon rim.

Comments: Coppertone and I came to the park today to hike a new geocache, so we did not get a chance to hike all of the trails. We'll be back. The trail leading to the canyon is relatively open to the sky, but once you get down to creek-level the foliage closes in on you. The start of the trail is relatively flat and spongy with the mulch laid down. The terrain gets more steep and rocky in the canyon itself.

This book gives you historic tidbits, folklore, and geography; detailed listings of lodgings, restaurants, and entertainment; major attractions, including state parks, museums, and historic places; directions, days and hours of operation, addresses, and phone numbers; and maps and calendar of events. This updated sixth edition contains even more destinations than ever before!

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
