Trinity University Volksmarch

This event earned me my first stamp for the "College Campus Walk Program".

Our volunteer parking director.

The volunteers manning the registration table. The walk started at the Chapman Graduate Center.

Carol was in front of the window, so this picture didn't come out very well. I will have to try again Carol the next event I see you at.

Volunteer helping us choose which walk route to take and getting us the right set of directions.
These are just the first roses we came across on the walk. There were lots of roses blooming.

The next four pictures give you an example of the variety of house styles we encountered on the walk.

The little bear that Lenore brought with her has a pink heart and AVA on her tummy.

We are headed back toward the college and can see the bell tower in the distance.

We were passed by a large group of walkers. I think they were from Kerrville.

Another nice house.
Had to stop to pet the pretty cat.

The people living here are ready for sping. They had a wreath of spring flowers over their door.

Another nice house, still decorated for Christmas.

As we went around the track on the campus we passed this exercise bicycle. Lenore gave it a try before we continued.

This is a very nice rubberized track.

College Campus Logo hung from the light poles around the college campus.

After leaving the campus we headed toward the Zoo. We passed this cafe called the "Bombay Bicycle Club". I liked their sign. Strange name for a restaurant though.

Entrance to the Japanese Sunken Gardens. This garden was developed from the first quarry of the Alamo Cement Company. The gardens are open from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. For more information click here

This cement plant was the first one built west of the Mississippi.

The plaque next to Lenore states that cement from this plant was used to build the state capitol building in Austin.

After finishing the walk we went over to visit the Alamo. Lenore is studying this in Texas History right now, so she was eager to see it.
