We try to take advantage of our Thousand Trails membership whenever possible. The Colorado River TT Preserve is just about 80 miles south of Austin - right on our route. It's so peaceful and quiet. Lots of green. Being in the desert all winter, I've missed green! We always feel welcomed when we check in at a Thousand Trails, but the welcoming committee here was special! There are deer all over the place. Odie wants to run and play with them - but we're keeping him on a leash. Using Google Earth, we mapped out a nice 1 mile circular walk. We'll stay here a couple nights. Lots of email to catch up on.
