For years and years, Texans have sung the praises of the beloved Hill Country. The breathtaking landscapes hum with unique varieties of wildlife and vegetation, and the surrounding culture has grown up in accordance with this colorful legacy! It’s not surprising that this Texas oasis inspired George Strait’s ode to the bright stars, prairie sky, and blooming sage deep in the heart of Texas. This area of Texas has some of the best climbing in the state!
