Bluebonnets

On Sunday afternoon, April 1, 2001, Paula and I went out for a drive up in Burnet County, northwest of Austin, to see the bluebonnets in bloom. Burnet County sends out crews in the fall to spread bluebonnet and other wildflower seeds along its roadways, and come late March and early April the county roads and highways are ablaze. We found a pretty spot along Ranch Road 1431, east of Marble Falls to take these pictures. Click on any of the thumbnails for the full image.
