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).
Some of the darkest skies in Texas can be found at South Llano River State Park, a certified International Dark Sky Park. Our state only has four such parks, so the designation is truly a prestigious honor. Set up camp, unzip your tent, and gaze in awe at the blanket of stars illuminating the night. No telescope needed!
Visit the park’s website or Facebook page for more information, including park hours and entrance fees.
