GUS FRUH – None shall pass, None shall pass at Gus Fruh in Austin Texas!!!
My son grabbed a very warlock like staff. #lotr
He enjoyed playing in the water at Gus Fruh.
Runoff water from the most recent storm in Austin, Texas.
By the way… when it rains in Austin Texas, we get many nice attractions. Like Gus Fruh!
But be safe around the water when it’s scary, people have come up missing and found in the water.
So, be careful and don’t do stupid stuff in rapids after a heavy rain.
Gus Fruh was originally shown to me as a climbing wall, bouldering cave, and a bit of hiking.

If you want to learn more about places on the Greenbelt, check out this page here.
MountainProject.com – Despite the fact this area contains some excellent walls and routes, it is not quite as popular as other areas such as Seismic or New Wall. This area is well shaded.
Because most of the clips start higher than most rock climbing places around Austin, Tx.
It’s not as easy to get to as other walls and new wall offers a lot of routes natives prefer.
My wife recently started going to the greenbelt and exploring. She found a great little swimming hole, the locals call it Gus Fruh!
This magic stick my son Andoni found also has some sharp edges, so I’m going around blocking face strikes.

Did you get a breakfast before an Uber ride? When you’re in a hurry and need to eat; grab a banana, eggs, potatoes, and coffee.
Throw your canon 6d on your shoulder, get on your phone, open uber, and try to find an uber close by.
Getting a breakfast while your uber comes is the key objective because ubers drive time analytics are a little bit off.
Did you know that you can cancel trips within 2mins of accepting a ride? If they are far away, you can cancel the trip, but I noticed it did not improve my chances of getting cars that seemed to be right next to me on the map.
Grabbing breakfast before an uber is a great way to kick the day off.
Time how long it takes you to get finished eating and order your uber during your breakfast.
Irving Texas dog friendly Siena Cafe. A nice little place in a shopping mall layout. I personally did not like any of the food and won’t be returning to Siena Cafe. (blogged on medium too).
We loved the fact that the staff was attentive to our needs, so I don’t feel bad about giving them good marks on customer service. It was entertaining and everyone was friendly. The fact that I didn’t enjoy the food does not mean their entire menu is gross.
Here’s how I would rate it. Pretend these full dots ⚪️ are stars. And ⚫️ is a lack of a star.
Giving it a 3 stars out of 5 total.

I enjoyed the presentation on my crepes but I did not enjoy the crepes. My wife really enjoyed her meal, she ordered pancakes with another dish.
It’s next to a nails, waxing, foot massage store, and walk-ins are welcome. (I’m reading the sign)
So, if you have your dog, family, a desire for brunch, and want your nails done – Siena Cafe ain’t half bad.
We are outside and the 15 month old is pulling our dog Charlie around by the the leash. He has finally taken over a task at brunch, a task I don’t enjoy doing.
I did not like my coffee, it was burnt. My eggs tasted buttery.
I needed to go inside in order to order.We were under the impression that our food would be very delicious…
Our dog Charlie really enjoyed the turkey bacon.
It was the only thing in my order that did not have butter on it.
Buttery hashbrowns… So delicious.
I don’t intend on doing bad reviews on my website, and usually just ignore the situation entirely. But I’m aiming at blogging about things that may be a little outside of the bubble.
My wife had a lot to say during this review, so I made up a joke with her about giving bad opinions about things.
If you have something to say, hit the button for Siri…
At least then someone will be listening to you.
He’s asking for more in sign language.
He thinks he wants coffee.

Covert Park at Mount Bonnell is a 5.1-acre historic linear park with a prominent overlook that is one of the most visited sites in Austin.

The peak of the overlook is a craggy limestone outcropping surrounded by a forested area of live oak, ash juniper, persimmon and mountain laurel that spans the slope between Mount Bonnell Road and the trails at the top of the park.
Here’s my new desktop on my laptop. It’s worth the trip and small hike up a set of stairs.

We walked a few flights of stairs to get to the views above and if you’re looking to get to the view, be prepared for a little hike!
PRO TIP: The parking lot was interesting and if you keep driving past everyone parked, you will find parking past the main staircase closer than everyone else! Bring water and a snack because it’s a little bit of a hike.

More stair cases images with my cute kid!
In 1840 Julia Lee Sinks described the area, “The knolls beyond the quarry branch were interspersed with timber, and sometimes though not often, we would see galloping past the open spaces beyond the blanked Indian. The path along the quarry branch, secluded as it was, became their main inlet to the town. It was a sheltered road, never traveled at night by whites, so the Indians claimed right of way, and all full moons brought moccasin tracks in abundance” more…
