We live in the Dallas area and it is about a 3-4hr drive to Austin down I-35 depending on the traffic, road construction, and if you stop for lunch... We took 9hrs to get to Austin on Saturday!! It was great!
The drive took us through some neat little old towns and reminded me just how much I do love Texas and how beautiful it really is (just not where I live). We saw gorgeous old courthouses, rolling fields, ominous storm clouds, met-up with good friends, saw a lovely young couple begin their life together as husband and wife, ate burgers at a College Station institution, and drove through the pouring rain all while taking the item to talk to each other and just enjoy being together. We have vowed to do a little more Texas road-tripping from now on. (I also need to figure out how to add photos in a collage...)
