Discovering the Hill Country

San Antonio is amazing. To the south are the vast south Texas plains. To the north is the hill country. Our new home is just north of the city limits, and yesterday I found out what that really means. I decided to bike to the HEB supermarket about four miles away to get a couple things we needed for supper, and I discovered that the hills in the hill country are awesome. One doesn’t realize that so much in a car, but it doesn’t take long to realize it on a bike. I’m not sure how often I will bike to HEB in the future, but now I understand why our street name is Misty Peak. I’ll just close by saying that I developed a whole new level of respect for Lance Armstrong.
