Place (Physical)

Hamilton Pool is one of the Austin area's water features. It's a natural pool formed from erosion of a underground river and also a great place to escape the Texas heat. Due to the drought, Lake Travis's water line has dropped and the temperature of the water has rose. Hamilton Pool is fed by a water fall and the temperature remains cool year round.
