McKinney Falls State Park

I enjoyed hiking the trails, admiring the scenery, and I caught my first sight of a flock or Snowy Egrets in a few years.

McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, Texas, is located at the confluence of Onion Creek and Williamson Creek. The park opened on April 15, 1976 and is named after Thomas F. McKinney, a businessman, race horse breeder and rancher, who owned and lived on the land in the mid-to-late 19th century. The park is part of the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail.
