Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Much of the bone-dry desert landscape Arizona is known for was only made possible by water erosion over millions of years. Once it was all said and done, iconic red rocks and sandstone pillars like those found at Monument Valley remained. This sacred Navajo park has been photographed more times than almost any other place on Earth, and for good reason.
