Upper Barton Creek
Barton Creek Wilderness
Austin , TX
With the exception of the freeway underpasses, this is one wild-feeling piece of land in the middle of a major city.
I was there in January, which is a spectacular time to visit Austin since the weather's great for running and people leave town for some reason.
Note on elevation profiles: I'm still working on extracting better data from my Garmin files.
