Texas Hill Country - steve-coyle

Cedar Cairn

There were a couple of these cedar cairns along the River Place trail that I hiked on Sunday. Interesting combination of an old cedar tree stump and limestone, both of which the Texas Hill Country has in abundance. I shot this in the late morning, but need to go back and capture it again earlier in the morning or late in the evening when the light isn't quite as harsh. Still, I thought it was a quite interesting way to mark the trail. Plus this trail is now a new favorite of mine now that it has been completely reopened. One of the more challenging trails in the Austin area from what I've seen. You'll definitely get a workout if you choose to take it on.
