Located in Texas, the Hamilton pool is the result of a land erosion thousands of years ago that caused a collapse to the underground river’s dome. More importantly, it’s beautiful.
The Hill Country makes theChive! Sweet! Lived in Austin for 8 years, Hamilton Pool is one of my favorite places to go in the summer. If you think the pictures are awesome, visit it in person, absolutely stunning.
Ahhh I just got a job offer in Austin yesterday! This will definitely be on my list of places to go to!
I wish to conceive my next offspring there.
#5 All the idiots on plastic rafts kind of kill the serenity
Home sweet home! Wish I would have thought to submit my photos of this place
Man, I haven't been up there in years. I love that place. I'm sure the water level has been pretty low with the recent drought. Gotta love the Texas Hill Country.
Ain't it great to be alive in Austin, TX
Hey…I live 5 miles down the road from H.P.
#12 So in a way its kinda like the Grotto at the Playboy Mansion without all the STDs and Legionnaires' disease
I live right by Hamilton Pool. It's cool unless it's white trash day.
WOW! #4looks like a painting.
Absolutely amazing, Mother Nature still schooling humans how to make jaw dropping landscapes!
Life long Austin resident. Although they must have spent a couple of hours cleaning all the beer cans up pre shoot, it is just one of the amazing places that make Austin unique. At least one or two people die or are seriously injured every year trying to dive in.
totally amazing what thousands of years with help of errosion earth quakes and rains will do to make beautifullandscapes
So like…. What’s stopping it from caving in?
Was born and raised in Austin, TX. unfortunately i live near NYC now but what i would give to go back to the Texas Hill Country…one of the most beautiful places on Earth
I work about 2 minutes from this place. It's a really nice place, but the photographer did a really good job making it seem prettier than it really is.
it's a result of karst hydrogeology, where limestone and dolomite are constantly eroded by carbonic acid…google karst and you'll found some crazy stuff
This is one of the reasons i LOVE living in Austin!
Now that's 1 thing I like from Texas. ZING!!!!!!!
Awsome place yall! Nice to see a home town swimming hole on The Chive. Good Thing they dont let that many people in at a time. Have a parknig lot when it is full people have to wait for somebody to leave. Keep Austin Weirdererer!!!
I grew up down the street from this place. I spent a lot of time here every summer. It's Amazing.
