One of the main draws of my in-laws’ ranch is the spectacular view of the Brazos River valley, especially from one particular rock known as “Lookout Point”. As I keep telling Dave Hutchinson, the stories about Texas being completely flat are untrue even outside of the Hill Country near Austin or the Pecos Mountains. It’s just that the sky overwhelms everything else. In that case, Texas is exactly like Australia. And just think: 350 million years ago, this was all shallow seabed.
