UPDATE from Travis County Parks re: Hamilton Pool Preserve (which is 8 miles down the road and well worth the visit!):
Due to the high demand of visitors and in an attempt to preserve the natural beauty of Hamilton Pool Preserve, Travis County has instituted a reservation system starting May 15, 2016 through September. It is a fairly simple way to provide the best experience to have a leisurely visit.

I am 63 and have lived in Austin TX for 25 years. I was born and raised in Englewood, NJ and graduated from NYU. I am active locally in environmental and political issues. I am a reader, a hiker, a gardener and a cyclist.
A comfortable bed is important as is a clean and functional house. Prefer not 'to rough' it and like the comforts of home. Airbnb is a new form of travel lodging for me and I think it sounds great. Eager to experience it.
When traveling I'm always looking to enjoy the natural world mingled with some urban life.
