For Father's Day, in addition to losing a hamster and a cat, we packed up and headed the 30 miles or so to Hamilton Pool. Formed by a collapsed cave, it's a perfect example of one of the best things about living in Austin - an abundance of natural swimming holes.
Inside the half-cave, it's cool, dark, and damp, with ferns growing in the seeping water and moss covering the walls.
Outside, it's Hill Country - scrubby, dry, baked earth. It was hard to balance the light in these photos.
