The Frio River

Few rivers in run colder or clearer than the Frio in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. The Frio is a marvelous work of nature, filled with thousands of smooth, polished stones from millions of years of flow. This shot was taken at a low water crossing near Concan, Texas on a hot and humid summer afternoon when the water is running slow and crystal clear. I’ve taken this same shot dozens of time before but I never get tired of the view!
