Hamilton Pool - Dripping Springs, TX

CTE!                                                                                                                                                   Via

Located about 30 miles west of Austin, Hamilton Pool Nature Preserve consists of 232 acres of protected natural habitat featuring a jade green pool into which a 50-foot waterfall flows. Formed long ago by the collapse of a large grotto (cave) into Hamilton Creek, the pool is surrounded by huge slabs of limestone that rest by the water's edge; large stalagtites grow from the ceiling high above. The ceiling and surrounding cliffs of the grotto are home to moss, maidenhair fern and cliff swallows. The Ashe juniper (cedar) uplands of the preserve are home to the endangered golden-cheeked warbler. (Source)

Beautiful Autumn Leaves



We never get to see stuff like this down here in Texas, and that's a shame. It kinda makes raking seem like a little less of the chore it is. Sure, we get the leaves on the ground, but they're ugly.. and brown. Always.

Wife's Our New Ride

2011 Dodge Charger SE Rallye, Blackberry Pearl exterior (basically a really dark blue), black interior.. 292 hp 3.6-liter V6 VVT Pentastar engine.. Keyless entry & start.. Cruise.. Awesome stereo. It's a lotta car for not a lotta money! Supposed to be 18-27 MPG (city-hwy), but we shall see. It's a really sweet drive. Superb handling, excellent brakes, tight suspension, and nice & quiet inside.

An Underwater River

If you are a professional diver you should visit Cenote Angelita, Mexico. There's some kind of cave. When you go deeper than 30 meters the water is fresh, deeper than 60 - it's salty. And then you see a river underneath, with trees and leaves. But of course, it's not a real river. It's just a layer of hydrogen sulphide. But it looks amazing. (Source)
