This Week on the Barton Creek Greenbelt

We received about three inches of rain at our house, so I headed down to the Barton Creek Greenbelt to see what effect it had on water levels. Although three inches seemed like a lot of rain, and a lot of it fell to the west, the creek wasn’t super high. Twin Falls was only flowing on one side. I didn’t get to Sculpture Falls, but I’m sure that it’s flowing well and the swimming hole is full.

I took another opportunity to ride the re-aligned Sweet Sixteen and although it removed a few of the more challenging obstacles I think that overall it’s an improvement. Some of the areas that were prone to erosion have been bypassed, which is a good thing.

There wan’t any visible progress on the Mopac pedestrian bridge. I’m looking forward to seeing it start to go up.
