.....construction cranes that is.......
When B and M moved to Austin 6 or so years ago, I was fascinated by the cranes working on the new high rise buildings. Even thought the local paper says many projects are on hold, the area has not been without cranes in the skyline since. From the 1st street bridge I counted EIGHT cranes working on buildings in downtown.
The group of people in above shot are stopping for a drink of water that is provided every day at two locations by local running store, RunTex. It's really nice when it's hot! By the way the trail around Ladybird Lake is a 12 miles loop.
Soon the "temple of doom" will be blocked by even newer buildings.
