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.
From the mountains of the west to the rugged canyonlands of the Panhandle, there are plenty of gorgeous scenic overlooks in Texas. One of the best – and most underrated – can be found at Bastrop State Park. The aptly named Scenic Overlook Trail is short, sweet, and leads to a panoramic Hill Country vista that’s almost too beautiful for words.
