Photograph America Newsletter on Wildflowers of Texas Hill Country
 
When weather conditions cooperate, spring wildflowers carpet the Texas Hill Country near Austin. I've heard that everything is bigger in Texas and on my trip, this proved true; I'd never seen so many wildflowers. Some patches of bluebonnets spread for more than a mile along the roads. Some patches started at the edge of the pavement, grew beneath the barb wire fences and covered whole ranches, with the deep blue color of bluebonnets disappearing into the distant hills. Near the town of Burnet, Texas, I saw a solid mass of red paintbrush that covered at least one square mile. In this newsletter, you get all the details needed to find the best back roads and locate miles and miles of bluebonnets and paintbrush. A map points out all the best routes. The colorful wildflower displays can be spectacular. This issue has directions to the Willow City Loop, Enchanted Rock, and Lake Buchanan, tips on close-up gear, filters, and technique, information on the National Wildflower Research Center, and several telephone hotlines that will simplify your explorations.
