Piper - I'm headed across Texas in a few months with time to burn. Aside from captock, palo duro, Guadalupe, and big bend parks, any must-dos or neat little areas in west texas/panhandle/hill countey?
Around Austin, the granite batholith at Enchanted Rock is a good half day to full day visit. It's extremely popular and closes when the parking lots reach capacity, so try to visit on a weekday. Pedernales Falls and Colorado Bend State Parks are also good. The most extensive trail system I've found locally was at Hill Country state natural area, you could fill up one or two days there. For lazier days, Blue Hole and Krause Springs are beautiful natural swimming holes.
