San Marcos Springs
Sometimes your most interesting moments throughout the day don’t transfer well to photographs. My sights in the Springs at the historic Meadows Center included a large alligator gar searching for dinner, turtles sunning on a limb, tons of fish swimming in the clear fresh water, a mother nutria shepherding her babies into their den for safety, and a view of the water flowing from the deepest part of the springs from inside a glass-bottom boat. The aquarium on site also allowed me to photograph one of the endangered salamanders. This is a beautiful place that made for an enjoyable afternoon, full of wonder.

Barton Springs Pool
I took a short walk around Barton Springs Pool this evening before sunset and it was warm enough that I wished I had brought my swimsuit. Oh well, next time… Isn’t this a beautiful swimming hole?
