A walk around Austin 

I finished work a little after 3 this afternoon, so I walked north from the Stephen Austin Intercontinental, where I am staying, to the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas campus. I took in an exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center -- a good idea if you are in town -- bought some souvenirs at the UT Co-op (pronounced the American way, rather than the Harvard way), and had a 512 IPA at Scholz Garten. A few stray pictures of Austin on a hot July afternoon follow...

Live oaks

More later. Or not.

If memory serves, that Austin pavement can be mighty warm in July. Enjoy yourselves!

Oddly enough, I have a scar on my hand from my last run around Austin. A signal box jumped off a street light and wacked the back of my hand.
