Lost Pines at Bastrop

Pine trees in Texas? You bet! Just east of Austin where the Hill Country is ending is The Lost Pines area. This pine is located in Bastrop State Park. There are miles of hiking trails, campgrounds and even a swimming pool. I didn't hike, but did check out maps and trail heads for a future visit.

Downtown Bastrop was a fun walk-about. Cute shops and icy latte. This antique shop was closed on a Monday.
This unique building is the City jail! The bars on the windows don't quite show up in this shot...

There is a lovely walking trail along the Colorado river, playground for kids, picnic tables and these cool swing benches. It was too hot to stop and enjoy the river.
Bastrop was a fun visit, and close to Austin. There's a Farmer's Market on Friday afternoons,
and that antique store that was closed........
