"Just 23 miles west of Austin, a city known for its quirks and weirdness, is perhaps the weirdest sight in all of Texas: a breathtaking natural oasis emerging out of the dust and scrub grass in the Texas desert. 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 led a diverse population of trees and vegetation to emerge surrounding the pool, forming what is now a protected nature preserve of the same name."
