Full Moon In Johnson City, Texas

This morning was uplifting, cool temps and very little wind.  We started from Junction, TX on I-10 for 20 miles before turning onto Hwy 290 towards Austin.

We said good bye to I-10,  at least for awhile, and the many truckers who surprisingly were courteous on the highway by moving to the far lane whenever possible. Turning onto Hwy 290 we knew we were in "Hill Country" by the number of rolling hills, trees and grazing land.  We passed some long horn cattle and goats, goats and more goats!
At Fredericksberg, TX we stopped for lunch at the town park which had a lovely gabazzo.  The town was built by German farmers in 1846.  Many of the original homes were built of stone and are still utilized today.

Then the landscape changed to farmland and a few wineries.
We ended the day in Johnson City, a quaint town, birthplace of Lyndon B. Johnson, with 98.8 miles of biking. 

My computer battery "died" at 60  miles and we had to rely on the Suburbans odometer.
