pedernales falls is a mere forty-five minute drive from austin and yet this past weekend was our first time visiting. upon hiking down to the water we were blown away by the strikingly blue pools of water flowing through the carved limestone gorge.
yes texas is huge, but we are continually amazed with the sheer differences in the landscape throughout the state. rivers, springs and lakes in central texas, coast line and marshes to the east, canyons up north, desert and flat lands in the mid west, and mountain ranges in the far west; it has it all. and pedernales falls was just a reminder of how much this state has to offer in terms of natural beauty.
although we only spent a few hours at exploring the pools, caves and cliffs that surround the park it was great to find such an amazing place that was so close to home.
