Barton Springs Heat Relief

20110802-044022.jpg

It is hot and all I want to do is submerge my entire person in the cool waters of Barton Springs.

Austin’s treasured three-acre swimming hole is fed from underground springs at a relatively constant 68 degrees. Native Americans called Barton Springs the Sacred Springs and would use the water to heal their wounds.

I won’t argue the Springs’ healing powers; it is a definite cure for the heat. Just be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen.

What are you doing to “beat the heat?”
