Visiting an old friend
Hamilton Pool - 3/12/2007  [View Log Page]

Visiting HP was like visiting an old friend. I had been there many times but it was usually to the pool and without regard to the "furnishings" and "attractions". This time I went with a wider perspective in mind and kept an eye on plants and creatures who make this their home. I re-visited again two months later on a guided hike provided by Travis County and they offered an even wider sense of its history and native species. It was amazing to see a nesting vireo within feet of the trail and to see a canyon mock orange, the colorful Mexican buckeye, and the red bay colony. Unfortunately the entrance fee is a little high, so share the cost of gas and fee with friends!

Take plenty of water and a snack for a stop at Jones Spring. Start 4 hours before dark! Beware the daddy longleg season in the spring or be ready for a shocking surprise if you use the primitive site latrine! If there is enough daylight, take a quick dip on the river through the regular campsite area to cool off (lots of nice restrooms for those inclined). I still believe it has the longest 1/2 mile marker I've walked.
