All about an extraordinary road trip from New Jersey to San Antonio, and back again.

Texas Hill Country

March 12, 2008 – 6:50 pm | by Dave

2008-03-12-080.jpgWe drove through Texas Hill Country today, coming into San Antonio by a round-about route instead of driving straight in via 35 from Austin.

We traveled a variety of Texas “Ranch Roads”, passing through a series of small towns: Dripping Springs (gateway to Hill Country), Henly, Fredericksburg, Comfort, Medina, Vanderpoole, Utopia, Sabinal, Hondo. Each had its own character and charms. The roads that connected them offered spectacular views of rolling Texas hills and scrub, and dozens of active ranches.

We had lunch in Medina, in a little patio cafe, famous for its apple pie. The people were friendly and the food was great.

It was a beautiful ride, but a long one, stretching the 90 miles between Austin and San Antonio into almost 300 by circuitous route. We arrived in San Antonio about 3:00, and settled into our hotel. Within minutes we were in the hotel’s indoor pool and hot tub. I suspect we may have gotten spoiled in Hot Springs :)
