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).
Warm weather hangs around in Texas longer than most states, which is both a blessing and curse. At Lake Mackenzie near Amarillo, the latter is definitely more true. This pristine reservoir is hiding in a place where few would expect to find it and looks like something out of a fairytale. Be warned: you’ll want to start planning a trip after taking just one look.
