Trail of Lights

We hadn't been to the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park for years. The last time I dipped into it you drove your car through. My sister and her family were visiting and the oldest kid was a teen I think. She's 44 now. In fact, the trail itself hadn't been there in a couple of years. There were financial difficulties. This year private sponsors were found and the lights and aging character displays went up. A dear friend was the event director. So we went. I didn't take a camera but shot this with the iPhone. You get the idea. That winding path through the park with trees decorated and giant dinos and such gave the impression of the maddest Christmas yard display ever. It was free and it was a hit with people with kids. Long lines to walk the mile or so through the park included lots of strollers and squirmy wide-eyed kids.

  1. Your photo at the Trail of Lights caught my eye. We took almost the exact same shot and posted it on our site as well. It was great to welcome the Trail back to Austin.
