A Visit to Wimberley 4-21-2019


I went out for a drive and of course, took my camera with me. I headed towards Dripping Springs with the ultimate goal of driving into Wimberley. This is a nice old Hill Country Town founded in 1848 and most of the buildings reflect the age of the town although I don’t think any go back that far. The shops are many and specialize in arts and crafts. I was there on a Sunday and business was brisk with the sound of music coming from several different locations. The town is located on the banks of the Cypress Creek which flows through the center of the town and has many, many very old and and very large Cypress trees. One of the trees has a nameplate designating it as “Big Daddy” Circa 1400 AD which makes it well over 600 years old.

The Town

I walked around town taking pictures and one of the things that I noticed were the colorful cowboy boots at different locations. These are part of a project started in 2014 named Bootiful Wimberley and to date, there are 50 boots located around the town. You can read more about this project and see more pictures of all of the Boots at this Link. I was only able to locate a few in the area that I covered but even they are very impressive.

These boots just keep on walking.

I spent time on the creek taking pictures but I cannot do justice to the Cypress trees as they are far too tall to include the entire tree from my position under them. Many stand 80 to 100 feet or more high.

On the way out of town, I decided to take the River Road to see the views along the Creek and the rock formations that make up the banks. I was not disappointed and got some great pictures.

  1. I love Wimberley. We used to visit there every summer. The Memorial Day flood a few years ago washed away our vacation spot on River Road, unfortunately. I’m sure you noticed some of the bare foundations as you drove along the road.
