Postcard: Austin, Texas

Swimming holes are essential to making it through the summer in some places. Austin, Texas, is one of those places. While mountain biking in the Barton Creek drainage one 93-degree day last week, I was dirty, sticky, and bloodied from an endo onto rock when I came across this hole just outside downtown Austin. If I didn’t have to be somewhere, I would have spent the rest of my day in this water. From the looks of the dogs chasing sticks and toys in the foreground, their calendars were free.
