Beautiful Austin

I know - I owe you a trip report and some pictures from my week of visiting Las Vegas, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and The Grand Canyon.  I've whittled down my 1400+ pictures to something more manageable - 840 or so.  I. Am. Not. Kidding.

The last few weeks in Austin have been so gorgeous - I'm convinced that if you visit anytime in October through January then you never want to leave.   This Sunday after church I decided to forsake the chores and DVR and traditional nap for some exploring and time with my camera.
(Those of you who know me will say, "Which camera?"  The Nikon D60 that I HAD TO HAVE when two friends at church turned me on to the series.  Yes I know, I should go to a support group.  "Hello, my name is Joyce and I'm addicted to new technology...")
I took some shots at Mount Bonnell and Lake Travis near my house.

The view of the Pennybacker (360 Bridge) from Mount Bonnell.

Part of the church across from my neighborhood that has a great view of Lake Travis.
