It’s time for our annual Campout and Toast to Coleman Davenport – so I camped out at Krauses Springs for four days. David came out on Friday morning and we did a nice ride from Spicewood, around the Willow City Loop, and into Llano for some burgers.
The route was county roads and Farm to Markets all the way to Hwy 16.
We were camped in our usual spot.
Here’s the sausages I rode up to Zabbicksville for a couple of weeks ago – along with some ring sausages Rob brought up from Bolners in San Antonio.
And even a little well-graded dirt in the mix – which David’s Ducati handled like a Russian.
The wildflowers were about done – but the cholla was fruiting out.
Willow City – well, the loop anyway – there are actually 2 buildings in downtown Willow City – which is about 20 miles down this little twisty roller-coaster of a road.
This area is in the Llano Uplift – which is a huge area of pink granite
The views along the loop make it hard to watch where you’re going.
And a couple of hundred yards of fence with cowboy boots on the posts is just as distracting.
After fifty miles of county roads, a two-lane farm to market road is like a super highway.
A quick run up Hwy 16 to Llano – and we found The Burger Bar just across the Llano river from downtown.
The special was a chicken fried hamburger – which David could not pass up.
And I had to do a jalapeno cheeseburger – with tots – the most magical of the fried salted potato products. This is a really good burger – fresh ground local beef, hand-formed, well cooked on a well seasoned grill. I’d say the chicken fried burger was pretty good, too, the same patty – breaded and deep fried.
Excellent burger, excellent ride, excellent day.
