    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.

    • Chris

    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.

    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.

  • Jordan

    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.

  • Patrick

    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
