Hill Country Wildflowers



They’re here! And in some profusion!

One of the best areas is Muleshoe Bend Park, along the upper south shore of Lake Travis. There are acres of bluebonnets where water once was, and ought to be, if not for the drought.

Lake Buchanan has similar coverage along its south shore, if not quite so wide a band as Muleshoe Bend, but it’s tougher to get to where you can really see the bluebonnets.

The Vandivier House just north of Marble Falls along US 281 once again has bluebonnets.


The Willow City Loop is pretty again, after several years of nothing much.


And the roadsides all over have frequent color.
