Sculpture Falls Hike at Barton Creek

Part 2 of Trail Adventure day.. that AllTrails app pointed us to a trail, that I had in passing wondered why there were always cars parked off the highway at this one spot… The trail we went to was Sculpture Falls Hike at Barton Creek (2201 Barton Springs Rd Austin, TX 78746)

This hike took about 4 hours round trip, mainly bc i’m obsessed with taking pictures. hah.. but was DEF worth it. the place we parked starts you out at the top of the tree filled valley

From there, there was tons of lovely wood stump details..

Finally, thanks to my partner, I was able to correct the white balance on my camera… and wow, did it make a difference on showing the lovely colors out that day 😀

"Pangaea"

Along with my happy joy fascination with stumps, I looooove finding “easter eggs” , example : this blue berry hanging out solo

or this independent sap

The way green and brown make beautiful visual love, is a wonderful find as well 🙂

There’s this trend I’ve noticed around Austin. And that is, people stacking rocks in random places:

On our way to the falls, we encountered this family, where the Dad was teaching his daughter how to climb up the cliff higher. haha. that’s something that would never have happened w/my family. I still fear climbing things, but hey. power to them and having faith in each other. 🙂

We almost gave up on the trail before making it to the falls.. it was getting late, but luck have it, somebody passed us and he was able to give us the info that we were 5mins away from the Sculpture Falls. Thank you random guy, glad we didn’t turn around bc it def was worth it!!
