It’s a big place! If you drove from Texline, in the extreme northwest corner of the Panhandle, to Brownsville, at the extreme southern tip, the nearly straight-line interstate route would cover 899 miles. According to the online Texas almanac, the state covers 268,596 square miles of land and water. There is a lot to see here, and even though Texas is growing fast and much of the remaining undeveloped land is private property, there are many preserves, refuges, and parks you can visit.
First, we’ll profile Texas’ ecoregions – the areas that elevation, rainfall, soil and climate make unique. Then, we will highlight a few of the great natural places to visit.
