Pictures from Barton Creek, Texas:

Barton Creek is a favorite among Austin locals whether it is flowing high or low because it is a great getaway right in the heart of Austin. This technical creek drains the northern side of Hwy 290, and ends in downtown Austin, but you would never know it while you are down in the creek. It has all of the charms of the Hill Country conveniently located close to work, school, and home for Austinites, and people travel from all over the state to catch this creek flowing. It has some quality playspots whether you are a paddler or just a swimmer. - Ben
