A Short Drive 11-17-2018



Cypress Creek where it crosses RR 962

I took a drive to Reimer’s Ranch with the intention of taking a short walk and a few pictures. As is my usual practice, I drove into all four parking lots with the first and the last both very busy and loaded with cars. Both of these lots have access to the rock climbing areas.

I got out and walked around for a bit at the second Parking , known as River Bend Parking No 2, which is the one that leads to the beach area and noticed that the gate was closed and locked leading to the beach. This meant that it was not accessible for vehicular traffic, a sure sign that the swimming season is well and truly over. There were several cars and people about as it still a great place to take a hike.

Deciding that walking was not what I really wanted to do, I jumped back in my truck and took off down Hamilton Pool Road and headed past both Hamilton Pool and West Cave Preserve before getting onto Cypress Mill Road  (RR 962). I enjoy just driving and seeing if there is anything that catches my eye and luckily for me I was able to get a nice picture of the Cypress Creek crossing the road (picture above). It was getting to be late afternoon and the sun  was very low creating a very beautiful effect.

Cypress Mill Road brought me back out onto Hwy 281 so I turned East and headed to where Hwy 281 intersected with Hwy 290 and drove back in to Dripping Springs stopping at the new Starbucks that has been installed there. I say new but I guess it must be a year old by now…

All in all, a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, listening to a great Audiobook and enjoying the Texas countryside.

  1. You’ve encouraged me to just get in my car with my main lenses along with my camera and just drive around. I have more time now to do just that. Absolutely stunning sky you captured. Thank you!

    • Yes, it was one of those moments when the sky was too good to pass up. I agree with your comment on driving. My truck is a year old and has 17000 plus miles on it and I bet that at least 7000 of those miles is just driving around listening to Audiobooks.
