Sightseeing at UT Campus

Weekends are so very busy for us.  I wish this wasn't the case, but for now, it is.  Between work, classes, training for the Spartan Race, and trying to actually make dinner once in awhile, we don't have much time during the week to get projects done around the house.  That being said, we generally save up all our house projects for the weekends and haven't done much exploring of our city lately {one of my passions}.

One thing that makes Austin, Austin, is that we have The University of Texas {UT, if you will} - home of the Longhorns and the school where the loyalty of just about every engineer I work with lies. Basically, it's kind of a big deal around here.  And the campus itself has a lot of history as well.

Last weekend it was absolutely gorgeous outside, and between trips to The Home Depot, we made time to take a walk together through campus - one thing we have yet to do.  Although the University is pretty much right smack in the middle of downtown, we tend to drive past the enormous stadium where the Longhorns play {deserves a post all its own!} and the famous clock tower {site of the 1966 massacre}, never really taking the time to walk through it.  In fact, I've even gotten to visit a few of the buildings for work, but never just to explore campus.

So, without further ado, here are a few shots I took while walking through UT's campus last weekend {mainly on our way to see the Turrell Skyspace, which was one of the projects my company worked on}.
