I recently rediscovered a nice little park in Austin that I hadn't been to in probably 20 years. It is off the beaten path, which is nice, and has a stream running through it, which is also nice. I ended up there, mostly by accident, with camera in hand. I was the only one there, and the silence was absolute. The only noise came from a waterfall that was downstream a bit, and you could only hear it when you got close. It was almost spooky out there, but it was great to just enjoy the silence of nature. I think I shall return.
