Willow Loop Texas Hill Country Scenic Drive part one
Willow Loop Scenic Drive north of Fredericksburg deep in the Texas Hill Country
April 13, 2007.
Our motorhome is in Lady Bird Johnson City Park 3-miles south of Fredericksburg on SR-16; $20 FHU including cable with paved sites. We tend to like Lady Bird Johnson City Park when we are in Fredericksburg because the RV-sites are situated under the canopy of mature pecan trees but there are several more that are good as well. The Fredericksburg RV-Park on Highway street is another good park but it cost more and doesn't have mature trees that provide shade.
On this day we decided to do "Willow Loop", a scenic drive 10-miles north of Fredericksburg, that wanders through some spectacular Hill Country scenery. Willow Loop seems to encompass much of the diversity of the Texas Hill Country in creeks, granite and marble outcroppings in the normal limestone bedrock of the area.

The picture on the right shows evidence of why this is called the Texas Hill Country.

In fact anyone visiting this area needs to stop by and experience Luckenbach.
Here are some links that will let you experience the ambience of Luckenbach:
Yellow and blue makes a good mixture with just a dash of white prickly poppy thrown in for good measure.
