Photo Friday takes us to The Hill Country of Texas

by Alexandra Minton Photography

The Hill Country of Texas is a very special place. It is beautiful, but in a purely Texas kind of way. The Hill Country is full of swimming holes, caves, cypress trees, oaks and lazy rivers. You’ll see beautiful wildlife, winding roads, and Texas wineries. Kayaking, tubing and floating are always summertime options. There are endless things to do in the beautiful Texas Hill Country!
