After leaving New Braunfels we did some wandering through part of 'Texas Hill Country'. Just a nice drive. Nothing extra special. I think that had we gone through the part of hill country that is east of Austin that we would have been more impressed.
We ended up in Lockhart, TX. The courthouse square there is very picturesque and the courthouse itself was pretty darn photogenic. The best part of Lockhart was the BBQ. The self proclaimed Texas BBQ trail runs from Austin through Lockhart and on to Luling, TX. This same trail is part of the famous Chisholm Trail. During the heyday of the herds, from 1870-1890, 10 million head of cattle traveled up the Chisholm trail. We at at Black's BBQ. Black's was started in 1932 and is still owned and operated by the founding family. It was outstanding. The kind of BBQ that is so flavorful that it needs no sauce. Lunch at Black's made the day a resounding success.
Nothing else of interest/disinterest to report. Nothing on the agenda for tomorrow. So you probably get to take a break from the blog for a couple of days.
See you down the road...
