Texas swimming holes – Krause Springs

Krause Springs

Last weekend we made the trip to Krause Springs to check out one of Central Texas’ top swimming holes.  You know you’re either a) old or b) a parent when steep rickety looking stairs scare you.  Turns out they were not rickety but they gave our blood pressure a good jump regardless.  Of course, after we scaled them we found a much easier path down to the spring…

Krause SpringsWhile it may not have been the best choice for a baby, it was quite beautiful.  We were surrounded by green plants, (which are hard to come by in Texas right now) moss covered rocks and some little falls.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun! My favorite Texas swimming hole is Lake Nocona in Montague county between Nocona and Bowie. My grandparents lived in Nocona and my brother and I spent a couple weeks, each summer, with them. Every day we would swim from sun-up to sun-down. It has given me some of the best, most loving memories of my childhood! Thanks for prompting me to go back there, AlI!
