at least there's no snow

well, here are some shots of lost maples state park here in the hill country. it is a little tiny microclimate where some family members of maple trees from before the last two ice ages are still standing. it's pretty amazing, if not visually, but scientifically (can't really hold a candle to mt, now can it?). texas is really interesting, geologically, if there's one thing we have, it's rocks. where i live used to be the coastline, so there are a lot of strange marine fossils around, though we're now 150 miles from the gulf. that's my cute little mom looking at rocks and flowers.

also included is a shot of me dressed up like an "east austin overdressed feminist society" member. we started a gang of stiletto-wearing bicycle riders, basically a bunch of chicks that like to dress up and ride bikes from bar to bar. it's pretty great. we get together about once and month and let 'er ride.


  1. The El Mahache' lives! Thanks for the shots, L. I hate to admit it, but the cold is getting to me a little bit, so your warm weather photos made me wonder. Actually, the winter's been pretty serious up here, but things are well. It is crazy beautiful when it isn't blowing 50mph...which it has on several occasions so far.

    I'm trying to plan a trip to Austin this coming spring, so I'll keep you up to date.

    Thanks again!

  2. Looks like a nice place and it reminds me of Wisconsin Dells. These cold weather pics and then, your warm shots really make me want to leave Chicago and its crappy weather behind.


  3. yay! all y'all come visit! i'll be here. i've got lots of wine, lots of music, and lots of time for my favorite montanans.

    cody, i can't find a way to message you, email me at
