    I will be in Austin soon for a Job interview (fingers crossed), and I'm looking for some places to check out for sunset Friday, or Sunrise/mid-day on Saturday.

    I'm staying downtown near the convention center and will have a rental car.

    Any locations, or meetups welcome :)

    It's a little bit of a drive but I would recommend going to Enchanted Rock. It can be fairly busy at times so be aware.

    That’s the oasis, but far from him! Check out Mt. bonnell for sunset! It’s the highest point in Austin! I’ve lived here my whole life, happy to help! You may enjoy castle hill graffiti park too.

    Now that you mention it, I kind of recall that. I only lived there a little over a year. What a cool town. But man, it was bloddy hot there. Great music as I recall. I seem to remember a huge motorcycle event as well. Then all those bats taking off a sunset.

    Yes the bats are amazing! I don't mind the heat, it was 90 this weekend and we spent the day on the river.
