we are back blogging - the laptop is back in working order and so it will take a little time to catch up with pictures here.
A roadtrip southeast of Austin brought us during Karin's visit to an absolutely beautiful place, Hamilton Pool in Dripping Springs. The access to this park is limited to 75 vehicles and requires a down hill hike to get to the pool or hiking trail over lots of rocks. The kids did great and luckily we went there early before it got too hot. We love trails through forest areas after our trees and shady areas here are quite limited. The view that opened up to us was simply amazing. The little beach area filled up fast, but the water felt wonderful refreshing and the walk around the pool through the cave was a must. At other times there is even a bigger waterfall there. We might be able to see that if we find the time to go back there - sometime in fall or spring.
