Just 23 miles west of Austin, Texas is a breathtaking natural oasis emerging out of the desert dust and scrub grass. More than a century ago, the natural dome that once concealed the entire grotto underground collapsed and created what is now called Hamilton Pool.
Hamilton Pool is a natural spring formed in the limestone bedrock and fed by an underground river, which also feeds the small tributaries and lush flora surrounding the pool. The abundant freshwater has allowed a diverse population of trees and vegetation to emerge surrounding the pool, forming a beautiful protected nature preserve.
Hamilton Pool Preserve is a natural pool, located just 23 miles west of Austin, Texas. It was formed when the dome of an underground river collapsed due to erosion thousands of years ago. Due to the freshwater, there is a diverse population of trees and plants surrounding the pool.

70 days. 2 countries. 23 states. 12,000 miles. “Moments” is a creative vision captured by a California couple, Justin and Cady Majeczky, as they traveled across North America accompanied by their two canine companions, Siberian Huskies named Nico and Taj. Destinations included Antelope Canyon, Banff, Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Glacier, Hamilton Pool, Burning Man, and many stops in between. Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.
