Butler Park is a nice little place across the street from Auditorium Shores near the Long Center in Austin. You can really get some great views of the skyline from there. However, I don't recommend going to the benches at the top of the little hill on the right there unless you just want to take in the sites. You see, if you want to get some photos, you may have a little trouble. Butler Park seems to be a magnet for fitness freaks who like to run up and down the hill and get in the way of perfectly nice photo opportunities. The nerve of those people! Trying to better themselves by staying in shape while making it difficult for me to get my shot! In a public place, no less! Why it makes me want to... Wait, I know.. Live and let live. I'm just kidding anyway. But if it weren't for them, I wouldn't have found this neat little pond and gotten this shot of the skyline. So really, it all worked out for the best! Thanks, you fitness freaks!
