Another beautiful spot only 30 minutes from our house is Hamilton Pool. It’s a small park, with a path going along a small stream to the Pedernales River in one direction, and in the other direction it goes to the actual pool.
The path is never boring.
The weather was beautiful and the autumn-golden cypress leaves contrasted nicely with the clear blue sky.
The rock here is filled with fossil imprints.
I even got my first ever close-up shot of a butterfly.
The Pedernales River isn’t breath-taking here, but still nice.
So now for the actual Hamilton Pool.
It’s such an amazing crescent-shaped overhang. The trail goes all around, behind the rocks down at the water. Let’s follow it.
Until halfway around, I was there alone. I was able to take it all in by myself, with only the sounds of nature around me, sitting down and just looking around whenever I wanted. By the time I was at this point, there were other people, but I was still able to take this picture without them in it, when they were just behind the rocks.
That’s all, folks.
