If you can only visit one spot in the Texas Hill Country, it should be Hamilton Pool a few days after a decent rain. The falls are spectacular and provide unbelievable photo opportunities. The huge, collapsed grotto allows hikers to travel under a cathedral ledge around and behind the falling water. The huge pool is great for floating and swimming, but I like this park best in the winter, when I can have it to myself. I like to take in the falls, then end the day at the Oasis Restaurant on Lake Travis for a spectacular sunset and great people watching.
