Description

I and my friend Meredith Edgley O'Reilly were privileged to go snorkeling in the San Marcos River this morning with Stephen Ramirez, a dedicated local naturalist very familiar with the area.

I don't (yet) have a waterproof camera, so the only photos I took were after the fact from a bridge over the river. They show the amazing clarity of the water and the beautiful endangered Texas Wild Rice growing in it. It was an amazing experience to flow with the current and watch this flowing wild rice below us!
