The Long Way Home

Here’s a shot I took a few months back during a hike at the Hill Country State Natural Area near Bandera, Texas. This secluded little state park boasts about 40 miles of hiking and horse trails winding up and down grassy valleys, crossing spring-fed streams, and climbing (very) steep limestone hills.

It’s also one of most beautiful outback areas of the state and offers wonderful vistas to photograph for those adventurous enough to hike up the rough limestone trails. It’s one of those spots that nature lovers prize the most; secluded, quiet and beautiful.
