We start to explore all the outdoor adventures Austin, TX has to offer! First stop is Barton Creek Greenbelt which at first looks to be an easy hike, but looks can sometimes be deceiving. We got lost. When you think of a Natural Spring, you don’t expect the type of setup they have at Barton Springs Pool. Around 800,000 people visit the natural spring every year. Puppy adventure time! We bring the dogs out to Latta Branch Greenway for a hike. It was a perfect plan B.
