The most interesting natural attractions in Texas

The most important natural attractions in Texas are located in the south central US state, locked between the rivers Rio Grande, Pecos, Brazos, Colorado, Sabine River and Red River, and south to the Mexican states Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas.

The size of the state implies much more natural attractions than any other US state. There are ten distinct climatic zones, eleven environmental areas and 14 soil structures. For these reasons, can divide Texas into four main areas - Interior Lowlands, Gulf Coastal Plains, Great Plains, and Basin Range Province. We start walking among natural attractions in Texas with an unusual place - Hamilton Pool. Located west of the city of Austin, a popular place for swimming in the summer months.

Hamilton Pool was formed after the collapse of the ground, thanks to the underground river. Arches over the pool are natural ways and the water that feeds the place is always clean, warm with a slight greenish color. Bookmark and Share
