Christmas Time in Austin – Keeping it Weird & Wonderful!

Many travelers drive to Austin or through it on Interstate 35, headed north or south. They are familiar with the Austin skyline, the beautiful State Capitol, South Congress and Sixth Street. Some have even been fortunate enough to have made it over to Capitol of Texas Highway or Loop 360 and seen a glimpse of the Texas Hill Country and climbed up to see the view of the Pennybacker Bridge. But, I’m guessing most, like me, are unfamiliar with the unusual tradition started more than a decade ago of decorating the trees, mostly junipers, along this scenic stretch of road.

I didn’t learn about it until a couple of years ago when my husband and I moved to the Austin area. I was on my way to work one morning before Christmas the first time I saw them. I don’t know who the special elves are who garnish the trees, I’ve never actually seen them. Of course, I’ve never actually seen a lot of things I believe in, but it doesn’t lessen my belief.

Since most of you probably won’t be traveling to this part of Texas over the next few days before Christmas, I wanted to share this magical experience with you on this cold and cloudy morning in Austin. Enjoy and Merry Christmas from Austin!
