Jacob’s Well…Wimberley, Texas
We had a celebration this past weekend…it was Tarzan’s birthday! Yes, my friends…he is getting older.
I surprised him by planning a day trip to Wimberley, Texas! It is a 3 hour drive from Houston, our home town.
There is SOOO much to do in this charming city! But first, I must share with you our first stop.
It is called Jacob’s Well Natural Area. The water flowing from Jacob’s Well, which is actually an artesian spring, is pushed forth naturally from the Trinity Aquifer roughly 140 feet below the surface.
With layered limestone cliffs on one side, a vibrantly vegetated bank on the other and a lively riparian area alongside the creek.
In the image above, you see the entrance of the well, yes…just a simple plank to enter into the springs.
What an experience this was for the two of us. Neither one of us had seen anything like this.
The cultural and natural heritage of Jacob’s Well had made it an integral part of our Wimberley experience.
It is a beautiful place to swim, observe birds and many other kinds of wildlife, take photos…MAJOR LOVE, hike or have a picnic with the family.
My only disappointment was we were here in the middle of the day…high noon…a no no for landscape photography.
I wasn’t able to capture the real beauty of this gem with the glare of the sun…please visit Jacobs Well site here to see what it looks like when the sun starts going down…breathtaking.
Jacob’s Well is fed into the beautiful Cypress Creek…here is the view facing west.
The view of the creek facing east.
Can someone pass me a glass of wine…as I take in this view?
You know you just have to love this man! He puts up with all of Jane’s surprise adventures!
Stay tuned…there will be more of this charming city in the next couple of posts.
Have a lovely July 4th my friends!
We are all blessed.
