On River Road

The Blanco River winds it's way through Wimberley.  During the summer, it was very, very low.  It was mostly a river of limestone, all along the way.  Here, on River Road, there is a one lane, low water bridge.  It acts as a slight dam, as well as a way to cross the river.  Even here, there were rock islands sticking up, during the summer.  I was lucky to get to stop long enough on the bridge to capture some fall color.

Looking the other direction on the bridge, you can see some shallow rapids, where only trickles of water were a few months ago.

There are many cypress trees giving us color here in Wimberley Valley.

This is just one of the many reasons we love this place.


  1. What a beautiful view. I'm so glad to have some water back in the rivers and creeks, aren't you?

  2. Sigh, just lovely. Thank you for sharing!

  3. It is a beautiful place. This is only about three miles from here. Close enough to enjoy.
    And,'s great to have water back. It was getting a little scary here.

  4. Great river and some beautiful autumn color you have going on. The color reflected in the water is so pretty.

    Oh, and I finally got tired of using my bookmark for your blog only to find I had missed posts so I hit "follow." :-)
