Eye on Texas: TX Open Swim


While a swim on a hot day can be a saving grace for anyone, for Texans, the intense heat makes the satisfaction of finding great water that much sweeter. My ‘TX Open Swim‘ project is a peek at the faces of people at my favorite (sometimes secret) Texas swimming haunts, and the pilgrimages to them. I try to take viewers to Texas’ unexpected oases to share in our most beloved resource.

The Texas Observer depends on support from its members to keep telling stories like the one you are reading now. This fall we're looking for 200 more sustaining members—people like you who can give us as little as $0.99 per month. Your membership means we can continue shedding light on issues that might otherwise go unreported. Can we count on you?
