Comments: Visiting HP was like visiting an old friend. I had been there many times but it was usually to the pool and without regard to the "furnishings" and "attractions". This time I went with a wider perspective in mind and kept an eye on plants and creatures who make this their home. I re-visited again two months later on a guided hike provided by Travis County and they offered an even wider sense of its history and native species. It was amazing to see a nesting vireo within feet of the trail and to see a canyon mock orange, the colorful Mexican buckeye, and the red bay colony. Unfortunately the entrance fee is a little high, so share the cost of gas and fee with friends!
