A couple of days road trip over Spring Break

Since Preston is able to drive now, we decided to load up my new truck and take a small road trip.  He drove the whole way.  We started with a drive to Colorado Bend State Park.  It’s about 2.5 hours away and is a large area on the Colorado River.

We ended up mountain biking some intermediate trails for 3 hours.  We were sore, tired, and hungry when we were finished.  Here’s a view from Strava and a couple of pictures in front of Gorman Falls in the park.

That night we stayed in Lampasas, Texas in a small hotel.  We had a nice dinner, watched basketball, and fell asleep to a movie.  The next day we drove to Pedernales State Park.   Traffic was backed up almost a mile outside of the gate.  We made a game time call and went to Walnut Creek Park in Austin instead.  We’ve ridden there many times, but the trails weave all directions so we always get lost.  Our sore bodies only lasted 6 miles before we called it a day.
