Day one of the iMedia Breakthrough Summit was fun, informative, and engaging. My esteemed colleagues Andy Cheng and Kyle Montero are doing a marvelous job of covering the hustle and bustle of this event. Kyle wrote about yesterday's keynote address, and Andy has endeavored to capture the entire event on camera.
While Andy took snapshots of people, I ventured to take snapshots of the environment. This is what the summit world looks like between keynote addresses, panel discussions, networking breaks, and one:one meetings at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Texas.
Say it with me: "Alpaca." Doesn't it feel exotic?
The alpacas came with a warning. As far as I know, alpacas don't grow horns. But then again, we don't even know if these cuddly mammals are actually alpacas. The white one likes to do somersaults in the grass so -- regardless of actual genetic makeup -- he passes my litmus test.
The garden definitely attracts butterflies.
The trail that winds alongside the Colorado River is ideal for outdoorsy types.
Did you know that the Colorado River runs through Texas? I sure didn't.
The Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa has a little something for everyone. For those who like the "spa" part more than the "lost pines," there's a pristine lazy river.
