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).
Texas has a whopping 89 state parks, so it only makes sense that some of them would fly under the radar. One of the best state parks in Texas, Resaca de la Palma, is also one of the most underrated, tucked away in the Rio Grande Valley. The views are second to none, and the biodiversity is just incredible.
Have you ever been to Resaca de la Palma State Park? If so, we’d love to hear all about your experience. Don’t forget to check out our previous article for a nearby butterfly sanctuary filled with thousands of tiny winged creatures!
