The beauty of the Texas Hill Country continues to haunt me to this day. I have lived in Austin my entire lifetime and never tire of trips to explore and photograph the wild areas Central Texas offers. Some of the following photos illustrate key areas covered in Hard Land to Rule. These are a few of the features that bring me back time and again to regain a sense of sanity in the enchantment of the hills and streams we are free to wander among. I've also included shots from other areas in the American West that are great places to roam and get lost in their charm. Click on my Facebook logo for more photos and comments.
