The Austin dogshead

Austin city demographer Ryan Robinson pointed out a neat trick I'm surprised I'd never heard of before.


When you're trying to orient yourself on an Austin map that lacks some of the usual landmarks, look for the "dog's head" formed by the Colorado River east of town (here highlighted in yellow).


It's one of those things that, once you've seen it, you can't help but seeing. For instance, look for it here and here.
