Today’s destination of the week just happens to be another location found in the United States; sometimes, living in just one place, it’s easy to forget how expansive, beautiful and unique the U.S. geography really is.
This particular location happens to be in Austin, Texas, although it looks more like something you’d find in Africa or South America. It’s called the Hamilton Pool Nature Preserve, a pool surrounded by limestone slabs and stalactites.
The spot is a little more crowded than some of the others I’ve posted; apparently it’s a popular swimming spot (I can see why!), but more on a local scale than a national one. The pool was formed after the collapse of an underground river, leaving behind this gorgeous swimming hole.
There, short but sweet! 🙂
