More Moss!

Here’s some more pretty winter moss in Austin, Texas. I took these at the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve. 16 years in this city, and I never heard of the place until I was researching places to find fossils. My son has a science fair project, so….

I’d feel bad not knowing about the preserver but my husband is from Austin and never heard of it. I think we may need to get out more.

I “underexposed” (AKA exposed for the sun on the moss) these for a dramatic feel.

It’s quite a lovely hike on a well-maintained trail. Lots of kiddos around. I’d like to return after a good rain to see how the increase in water changes the view.

If you have any mobility issues, the hike to the waterfall is too much–too many stairs and slippery rocks. You’ll want to stick to the smoother trails around the preserve.
