I forgot to blog about this hike. I am a few weeks behind on blogging hikes.
But I have been going on them. This started out as a trip with a friend of mine to obtain some breakfast tacos.
After tacos were consumed, we decided to go visit a local park. We watched the water flow through the San Antonio river, and I mentioned that not very far from where we were is the birth place of the San Antonio river.
This prompted a short journey up to the park to see the birthplace of the San Antonio river, actually pictured above. There is a creek that spring feeds, there are a few springs in this park and with that combined we have the river that has made San Antonio famous.
The park is called Headwaters Sanctuary and it has a wonderful nature trail that heads right into the shadow of Olmos Dam.
I had driver over Olmos Dam but had never been this close to it.
The water was roaring through it on this day because we had a ton of rain and flooding. I was amazed the trail took us this close to the dam. That is normally a very small creek that heads to the spring above.
Its a wonderful hike, through a pretty part of San Antonio. It was lush and green and you could forget you are in the city.
