Get Lost In This Enchanting Texas Forest That’s One Of The Largest In America
Sometimes, the most awe-inspiring natural wonders are hiding in our own backyard. Nine different ecosystems converge at Big Thicket National Preserve in Southeast Texas, making it the most biologically diverse place in the U.S. All of its 100,000+ acres are covered in various types of towering trees that beckon hikers to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the forest.
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 changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
