The Flats was the first part of the Greenbelt I saw when I moved to Austin. A boy I was flirting with took me and a girlfriend there for a drum circle. I fell in love with the water flowing through the naturally carved stone formations and the friendly Austinites. I lost track of them that night and ended up leaving with new friends. Shifting of flow tends to happen at the Flats.
