Zilker Botanical Garden

So with summer upon us, and a holiday weekend starting, I thought it would be kind of fun to post some of my travel photos.  Eric and I love to travel, but haven’t been able to do any lately, so I thought it would be nice to go on little virtual trips.  What do you think?  Want to take a little road trip with me?

Back in September of 2007, we went down to Austin to visit my sister.  We spent one afternoon with her and my niece at Zilker Botanical Garden.  The park is really beautiful, and we enjoyed wandering around and taking photos.  At the time, I didn’t take a lot of photos, so I don’t have many to share that don’t have my niece or Eric in them.  But we had a good time walking through the various gardens.

You just have to watch out for the velociraptors.

But really, it is a very tranquil spot, and there are some fun sculptures for the kids, which makes it an adventure.  You never know what you’ll find around the next bend in the path.

So the next time you’re in or near Austin, stop by Zilker¬†Botanical Garden¬†for an afternoon.

    Also, pretty close to me; I’ll be taking my boy to those gardens just as soon as this Death Hell Texas Heat subsides.
