The Texas Hill Country

Going camping in the Texas hill country tonight, so this is probably me signing off for the day.   The Texas hill country is stunningly beautiful and looks nothing like what myself, and many who have visited, imagined when we think of Texas.  Tuscany in Italy is the closest landscape I can think of.  It is usually a deep green full of medium sized trees and rolling hills.  I have been all over the world and live oak trees are aome of the most beautiful I can think of.  They look like they were created with children playing in mind.  There is something warm and comforting in the hill country’s beauty.   Many beautiful places in nature overwhelm you with their scope.  They can leave you feeling small and lonesome even as you stare in wonder.  Meanwhile the hill country is inviting and fills you with a sense of safety, even if it is sometimes probably misplaced.  If you are a traveler, and haven’t yet been to central Texas, Google the Texas hill country.  I think you will be surprised by what you see.
