One of the things I love most about the Texas Hill Country are the clear running streams. You can often see the bottom, no matter how deep they may be. Along the East Trail at Lost Maples State Park, there is such a pool of water. Even in this multi-year drought that has dried up much of the Sabinal River, there are still pools of water like the one in this photo. So inviting, and the fall colors only add to it's draw.
