i've the springtime central texas trip itch, so i've been planning some day travels. i was read a spooky (not really) story last weekend about a fiddlin' man who accepts a challenge from the devil involving banjos and rattlesnakes. i'll spare you the details, but the point is, this story was set at rattlesnake ridge in wimberley, texas. well, of course, because i'm me, i immediately began planning my trip to the now infamous rattlesnake ridge. sadly, it is a fiction. but! i still want to visit sweet wimberley, taste artisanal pickles, buy expensive rocks, and find a diner with hot coffee and pie.
