Last time I was at Camp Eagle, I rode by this spot - a hill in the middle of the property, 2.5 miles up a jeep road from the cabins, topped with a windmill and this pool - during the Cross Country mountain bike race I was doing.
This time around at Bird Camp, instead of riding past it and hating life and the rock-studded hill country trail, I stopped.
I took my shoes, helmet and shirt off, and I jumped in that freaking pool. Four years coming = one awesome swim! I love this place and that I got to share it with my Oiselle Volée.

My new carbon hardtail mountain bike developed a crack at the base of the seat post and our supplier was super quick sending out a replacement. BUT, had to chop the bottom bracket out of this repairable $2k carbon frame to satisfy warranty replacement conditions. I cried a little today!
