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).
If we had to pick one region of Texas that gives visitors the most “bang for their buck,” so to speak, it would undoubtedly be the Hill Country. From all-day floats on the river to rugged canyon landscapes, this area truly has it all. Pedernales Falls State Park is one Central Texas destination that belongs on your bucket list, with its pristine waters, ancient rock formations, and breathtaking panoramic views.
As is the case with most bodies of water in Central Texas, flash flooding can occur in a matter of minutes. Keep a watchful eye on the water level, and leave the river area immediately if it starts to rise. Visit the park’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
