Local hikes

We've been enjoying the outdoors here on certain early mornings that aren't unbearably hot. Here are some pics from some of our hikes.

Greenbelt hike with my Outdoorsy mom's group

Isn't this pretty? This is Hamilton pool in Dripping Springs. The water temperature was just perfect and under that waterfall I felt as though I was in some old western movie bathing in a spring.

Our hike before heading to Hamilton pool
The view of the Pedernales River at the end of the hike.

Greenbelt hike with Omar. We were heading to the same creek pictured above with Elena and planned to swim but it was completely dry. We headed to Barton Springs instead.
Canoeing Barton Springs. It didn't last. The girls did not like sitting still or the rocking motion of the canoe when they moved. We'll try again when they're older.
Swimming Barton Springs. This they enjoyed even though the water was extremely cold.
