I have bad news for you. The Green Belt in Austin, Texas is Dry! But don’t worry. It’s only temporary, and only in certain parts of the green belt where the elevation is high, compared to other isolated areas where the water is always running. For example, you will always find water down at Barton Springs Pool.
So, have you ever hiked the Green Belt along the trails next to the creek only to walk to a nice deep spot to go swimming? That’s what I had in mind when I started my journey last week. After finding out that I had no other plans for the rest of the day, I decided to go swimming. Only to realize that the whole green belt was bone dry. It was pretty sad because I had already packed my shorts and sandals.
Rather than crying, I decided to just hike the trail. After roughly two hours of hiking, I got to the end of the trial, but the cool thing wasn’t getting to the end, but rather what I found along the way. Instead of reading this, you should just watch the video above to see what I mean.
