The crystal clear water comes from the Edwards Aquifer which is recharged in the Texas Hill Country. This is the tube chute in the middle of town, a favorite of locals and all Texans for tubing, paddle boarding, swimming and cooling off in the hot summers. The river maintains a 70 degree temperature even steaming in the winter time.
