Austin Camping Trip - Part 1

I'm excited to share photos from Camperrrr's first road trip. A couple of weeks ago we drove down to Austin for a much needed vacation. We stayed at McKinney Falls State Park which is a gorgeous park about 15 min. outside of downtown Austin, really great location!  It was a weekday when we arrived so we got the pick of campsites. After setting up camp and exploring the park, we hit up a late night diner for dinner, then geared up to check out Hamilton Pool on our first day.

Checkin' out the state park.

Camperrrrr is the cutest.  Okay?

So here's the thing, Hamilton Pool has a "one car in, one car out" policy. Basically because it's protected and they don't have a very big parking lot. I knew there could be a wait but hoped that a weekday would be better. At about 1:00 pm we pulled up and there was quite a line but we only waited about 30 minutes to get in. I've read that on weekends it could be a 2 hour wait, so get there early. After the wait there's a 1/4 mile hike to the pool itself. But trust me, it's worth it.
