The Austin Lantern Festival happened to be one of those magical experiences in life where thousands of Austinites gathered together to enjoy the sky lit up with thousands of lanterns, slowly hovering over you and then gliding slowly up towards the sky, creating this miniature galaxy of lights.
Have you ever been a tourist in your own city? Looks difficult, but it’s not that hard as well. I guess it’s only the mindset, it’s the shift in outlook that matters.
The hilly geography, along with the Colorado river and sporadic rain pattern has created these creeks passing through the rocky hills all around Austin. A typical Austin hike is always a hike around some creek and Bull Creek was no exception to that fact.
Spring stands for regeneration, brightness, fun and festive atmosphere. The trees wear new leaves and blossom with colourful flowers. The grey patches along the green mountains start getting green again. A lot of blues, yellows, orange and red are sprinkled along the greenery across parks, highways and lawns.
There is no end to fun here but kids can get really crazy and you might want to watch your wallet before they get over boarded
One of the noticeable things in Austin is it’s green clad mountainous terrain, winding roads and some of the most picturesque spots, giving you those awes, as you watch serene beauty of Colorado river, winding through these mountains and people…
As the show gets started, everyone gets glued to this rhythmic illumination, trying to capture its beauty and be part of this celebration.
2016 was full of festivities, events and fun, right from booming of spring flowers to Ganapati festival and from beautiful lighting of Diwali to wonderful gathering during Thanks-Giving
With mild climate, wonderful people that I always keep meeting on these trails and beautiful greenery of Cedar trees around this was a fun day
