The Sapphire River In Texas That’s Devastatingly Gorgeous
Blue water isn’t exactly prevalent here in Texas, so finding a diamond in the rough is just that much more satisfying. Devil’s River, part of the Rio Grande Drainage Basin in Southwestern Texas, has arguably the most striking sapphire hue of any body of water in the state. I would definitely look into planning a trip here sometime soon, especially now that the temperature is starting to warm up!
