Red Bud Isle: where dogs (and people) roam free

Over the weekend, Nate & I spent the day in Austin.  After getting some lunch and meeting up for a short shopping stint with my Aunt & cousin, we wanted to kill a couple of hours… but didn’t have any clue of what we wanted to do.  So we drove.  I pulled out my phone and was like “let’s go here” and pointed to some random island near Lake Austin.  So it was completely by chance that we stumbled upon Red Bud Isle.

As soon as we parked (which FYI, parking is limited), we soon figured out this place was devoted to man’s best friend.  Basically it’s an island where dogs can roam free, off leash.  (Unfortunately, we didn’t have our little furball with us, but we plan on bringing her sometime soon.)

There’s lots of random paths and trails. Totally not uncommon to just see dogs chasing each other through the woods.

So serene.

This was my favorite spot.  At the very tip of the island, there is a tree and all of it’s roots are exposed.

My favorite picture.  Sigh.

Of course I had to add some pictures of our furry friends we met.

This dog below is Sidney. She’s 14. What a doll.  I can only wish I look that good at 98.

So if you and your pup are looking for a fun time in Austin, I suggest you go check it out.  Because of the terrain, don’t be surprised if your pooch gets wet and/or muddy.
