The Texas Hill Country

The Hill Country is composed of high hills sometimes called mountains that fill an area from San Antonio to Austin to Lampasas to Junction.

Most of the rivers that run to the Gulf start in this area. There are lakes; high farming valleys; hiking, biking, and riding trails; dude ranches and resorts; wineries and chocolate factories; and a whole host of local artists and craftsmen.

Cibolo Creek

Cibolo Creek is lined with cypress tees that cast wonderful shadows at dusk. Here you will find the Texas that is picturesque.

You will also find proof that Texas is not flat. Nor is it a desert.

Enjoy the canoeing, swimming, and fishing that permeate the Hill Country.





Hill Country Deer

The hill country teems with wildlife. There are fox, coyotes howl at nightfall, and wild boar raise families in the brush. Hunters will find wild game ranches and many hunting seasons.

Merino sheep, angora goats, and emu are cash crops just as much as the cattle and horses on ranches.


Longhorn Cattle

Purebred longhorn cows are the survivors from the stock that Spain imported back when Texas was part of Spain.

Whether it was Indian raids or just plain escaping, these cattle made it into the wild and managed to survive along with the horses that became the symbols and ranching income of Texas.
