Austin, TX – Westcave Preserve (HDR)

From my photowalk with the local Austin Photogroup…here is a waterfall shot from Westcave Preserve.  Quite a magical place (tours only).    It is about a 10 minute walk to get to the cave…all worth it!   You feel displaced when you are there…sure does not feel like Texas!  If you are in Austin, this is a must visit!  Beautiful indeed!

Info from the web:  The trail follows a clear running creek upstream to the head of the canyon where a sparkling waterfall tumbles 40 feet of fern-covered travertine columns into a vivid emerald pool.  Here, visitors step into a grotto behind the artesian spring-fed waterfall and examine cave formations and lush plant life seen in few other places in Texas.
