San Gabriel River near County Road 258

The allure of local rivers

Some of my favorite motorcycle rides are those which lead to river crossings. I love the unobstructed view of the water as we slowly ride past. Low-water crossings are even more thrilling! The Texas Hill Country is home to many beautiful river and creek crossings, and I’d love to see them all. I’ve watched eagles hunt for fish on the Llano, hiked down to the Pedernales, stacked rocks near the Colorado, and sat quietly by the clear green water of the Blanco as it swirled downstream. This image was taken of the north fork of the San Gabriel River as it flows under County Road 258, northwest of Lake Georgetown. On that particular evening, I arrived just in time for sunset. I placed my camera on the bridge, pointed it toward the west, and captured the clear water, the clouds, and the final moments of sunlight.
