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 enjoying their water activities. Mount Bonnel is one of the best spots to watch this. The million dollar houses will make you feel jealous, but you would also feel blessed, as you sit there on a lovely evening, watching boats, admiring cute houses and enjoying breeze.
Not very far from down town, this can be a prefect spot especially during evenings, to spend some time with your loves ones, sitting at the top and getting soaked into the natural beauty around.
The houses on the banks generally look like palaces with a bunch of boat garages to park their boats.
If you are interested in photography, then you might get few wonderful shots of downtown from its left end as you enter the Covert Park from the stairs.
On the other end you might be able to see the 360 bridge and a typical mount bonnel view of the Colorado flowing through hills.
The hills look lovely from distance with some of those cute clusters of houses gelling quite well into the greenery of cedar and oak trees.
So if you are in Austin and have fascination for nature, Mount Bonnel should be at the top of your list.
