Austin’s weather has definitely contended with Seattle’s lately. We’ve had so much (record) overcast and rain the past year that the days the sun does come out is kind of a huge deal. So as you can imagine, I was thrilled on the day we got to shoot this set – we had slipped out of 30 degree weather with high winds just days prior. We wanted to check out the Boardwalk Trail at Lady Bird Lake (aka Town Lake) near downtown, which just completed last summer. It’s a beautiful location for running or cycling. I long boarded it, and although it’s doable, the slats in the concrete construction isn’t ideal for boarding unless you’ve picked up some significant speed. It will definitely be a must see spot for all our SXSW visitors next week.
