Hamilton Pool Preserve is considered one of the top summer swimming destinations in Texas. Thankfully, you can only enter with reservations to protect the environment from over use and damage. To see it in person and swim in the clear emerald-green waters is a real treat, as is the hike along Hamilton Creek to the Pedernales River. Going there you get a sense of what life might have been like in the seventeen or eighteen hundreds before modern piping, showers, housing, etc. It is peaceful, tranquil, and really enjoyable. Here are some photos from Hamilton Pool and the hike along Hamilton Creek. For more information about reservations click here: https://parks.traviscountytx.gov/find-a-park/hamilton-pool

 

The Blanco River is another Texas Hill Country favorite that provides excellent paddling, fishing, hiking, along with swimming in the Texas Hill Country. Here are a few photos from my recent trip. Enjoy!

One of the greatest recreational rivers in the great state of Texas is the Guadalupe River. It’s cool crystal clear waters provide life giving water to the Texas Hill Country and a great place for play and photography. Here are a few photos from my recent trip along a 23 mile stretch of the river for leisure. Enjoy!
