Bull Creek runs just a few miles from our home.  It winds through hills and canyons for a few short miles until it flows into lake Austin.  There is no better place to cool off on a hot summer day.  The limestone base of the creek keeps the water clear and  there are many places where the water forms pools (or swimming holes as we call them). 

There are 6 places we consider special and I am only posting one at this point but I will make sure to update them as things heat up in Summer 2010.

A little Bull creek history.  Bull Creek is named as such because the last Buffalo in Travis county was killed near the creek in the late 1800's. I wish the name had a better story.

Also, it has obviously been a popular for a while.  We have found many stone artifacts...  Arrowheads, scrapers, tools, etc.   I have a trusty guide to native American artifacts and many of  these match up to periods well before the birth of Christ.  Folks have been beating the Texas heat here for a while.   I will do a full section on this later.  But 6000 years ago while the Pharaohs were trying to achieve immortality though their pyramids, native Americans were hunting and harvesting.  they were thinking of the future, and enjoying life.  I thought at one point when I was young that i would be remembered by the great deeds I had done. Those hopes are gone, except for the children that I raise
