We went and visited the Balcones Canyonlands located at +30° 30’ 27.03”, -98° 1’ 30.19” while visiting our cousins! This first pic is my brother looking out at the canyon. You can see the Colorado River in the distance, in addition to the reserve entrance.
The native trees in the canyons are juniper cedar cypress trees, which look vaguely like christmas trees! They have a wonderful scent that fills the windy brisk air as we hiked.
We took a route around the edge of the mesa once we got to the top, and then cut across the middle, which rose just a bit to let us see for miles around.
