WIMBERLEY RIVERS AND STREAMS
Drought Conditions in Wimberley
 

Drought conditions are a part of life in the Texas Hill Country, especially in summer when resources are often overtaxed and undersupplied by rain. Below are photographs of the 1492 river crossing at River Road during a summer drought.

From the East side: 





 Sculpted by the river, the white limestone bed looks almost like water, but  this drought was tough on the Blanco flow...only a small stream remained. This condition is not uncommon during long periods of dry weather in the summer.




 

Yet, thanks to some hardy natural plants, xeriscape candidates, there are still some beautiful views. These seem to grow right out of the rock.

It's best to avoid the water in drought conditions,
which will produce higher than usual bacterial counts
in our normally clean rivers and streams. Please use
common sense in determining when to swim.
