Salado Creek Greenway – San Antonio 10K – 07/18/2015

The Texas Wanderer’s Club in San Antonio was holding a “Group Walk” of their year round event on the Salado Creek Greenway.  We drove south to joint them in walking this event which is on a paved hike/bike trail along the creek.  The walk started at the Lady Bird Johns Trailhead off Nacogdoches Road.  We were late getting there because of the drive.  Most everyone had already finished by the time we started. 

Linda and Gerald were registering the walkers.

When I got bored with the paved trail,  I took some nature trails.

It was an out and back walk.  This was the turn around point.

This nature trail was a mistake, it didn't come back to the paved trail.  Had to find a cut across place.
