We made it to the Trail of Lights tonight in Austin’s jewel, Zilker Park, for the first time in probably 5 years or more. We used to go more frequently, but it has either not been easy to get down there in recent times, or it has been postponed for financial reasons. I remember, in the good old days, being able to decide at the last minute to go, and just zip down to the park and park for free on the grassy field and walk over. No more. We had to plan ahead. I got a parking pass online which made it a little easier, but the traffic was really crazy, and the crowds were enormous.
In any event, the lights were simply lovely.
This is the tunnel at the entrance…
This is a view of a bunch of different lights, with the Zilker tree in the background.
I love the tree lights.
And one last look back towards downtown. It’s a little blurry, but you can see some of the Trail lights, some of the city lights, and the waning Cold Moon.
