The border

The border area lying between the south-east and south-west parts of America have a uniqueness to become mentioned as a distinct region. It is known as the Texas Hill Country and that is for specific reasons. It lies on the south-east part of the Edwards Plateau that forms big habitats on its grasslands and caves. The characters of the flora and fauna of these habitats have influenced the bounties of Texas Hill Country also. It combines the geographical, ecological, and climatic features of both the sides lying near it.

Just like the plateau terrain, the region has a hilly terrain that consists of numerous caves, and hills made of limestone and granite. This topography is geographically called karst topography and has created many marvelous and natural structures in the deep and interior caves. If the hills reach to a maximum of 500 feet, the nearby Packsaddle Mountain rises higher above up to 800 feet. This mountain is a treat to the tourists as well as the geologists who are working to unearth many historical stories lying beneath each layer of rock. If gold formed the center of old stories, tribal fights dominated the later historical years. For the tourists, the saddle-shaped rocks give the most intriguing sight. Next is the Llano Uplift which consists of higher terrains and granite domes made up of igneous and metamorphic rocks. It has a diameter of about 90 miles and extends from the Colorado River to the Llano River. You can get the famous pink granite blocks from the Granite Mountain rock quarries or enjoy the Enchanted Rock which is the largest of its type in the US. All in all, it is a great site to know how beautiful granite domes can get and how bountiful you can become with pink granites.

The next geological wonder here is the Balcones Fault Zone in the south-west part. It is actually made up of many smaller faults, depressed faults known as grabens and raised faults known as horsts. Along the Colorado River, the Covert Park or Mount Bonnell Fault offers great tourist points and forms a part of the Balcones Fault. This fault zone is also significant for the fact that the neighbouring cities of Austin, New Braunfels and San Marcos are fed by the water of the springs coming from the Edwards Aquifer located on the Edwards Plateau. The country hill is a combination of great geological formations without many human interventions, but is highly useful for the human settlements here, apart from serving as tourist destinations.

River-road

Texas Hill Country Bed & Breakfast Homepage
   The Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake Texas is a paradise in the middle
of the Texas Hill Country. River Road is a winding road that takes you to
most all the river outfitters in the area. 
 
 
 The highway routes are locally called as river road which leads to the United States, Rio Grande and it forms the boundary between the Mexico and U.S. Travelling in this route is very amazing and there is no other place. You can get the useful source of highway routes are available in the website. This little slice of paradise
is a beautiful place to visit and must be a joy to live in. The people 
who run the river outfitters are warm and friendly. I have spent some 
time in the area and made some friends like Charles and Jane Lackey.
  These pages are some of the River Outfitters and hotel and accommodations 
folks I have talked to and recommend if you ever get that way.

Portaransas

Welcome aboard with Captain Butch Findley for the best fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Butch Findley has been guiding bay and gulf fishing trips since 1984. He is a native to Port Aransas and the area and has lived here all of his life.

Port Aransas is a city located in the Texas, United States consists of population about 3,480.In Mustang Island, Port Aransas is the only established town. The Texas is developed by karankawa Indians and they led the migration from the mainland to the coastal region. They lived in a small place where fishing is carried out called Sand Point and it is later called as Mustang Island. They are enjoying the humid subtropical temperature

In the early 19th century, the pirates settled in Port Aransas and they are in search for the riches. The captain Jean used this place to make camp and also as a place to hide their treasures. The chest of the treasure is used to mark by using the silver dagger which helps to secure the location. The life saving station was built by the United States in Port Aransas in the year 1850.  The station gave More Help to rescue ship wrecked mariners. The life saving station was run with the help of the volunteer crew. It consists of dock which is stretched from boathouse into channel. When boats are not in use, they are pushed into the boathouse.

In Port Aransas, there is a free transportation service provided for 24 hours. The transportation routes are connected form Mustang Island to Port Aransas through the Aransas pass. On demand the service of boat is provided. About six boats are used for the transportation which carries 20 passengers and tow large ferries are used to carry 28 passengers for each trip. During peak hours there will be a rush and the passengers have to wait for some time till the arrival of ferries. There is a continuous announcement of the regulations of ferries and during the emergency situations.

Captain Butch has a great reputation for finding the fish and getting them in the boat for the fishing trip of a lifetime. He also offers the Blast-N-Cast trips for great duck hunting and fishing in the same day. Take a look at the photo gallery and give us a call or send email for reservations. You will be glad you did.

Welcome to Sportsplex in Port Aransas, Texas. We have the best seafood on the island and it’s as fresh as you can get it. If you are looking for a great fishing trip, we can also book you with some of the best guides in the area. Settle yourself in an extensive trip on the Mustang Island. You have many things to watch out for in this barrier island that is also the longest along the coast of Texas. Although the Port region suffered major setbacks during the world war era, it has now modernized into a place lively with fishing, resorts and beaches. Summers are especially crowded here. Busy office-workers can have a nice and relaxed time along the beaches. It is also a favourite destination for the college students who check out here alone and in groups during their site web outings or summer or spring breaks. Fishing is not just a sport or leisure activity here, but the biggest economic activity. In the early years of the twentieth century, the export of sea turtles also brought income to the residents of the Port. Now, eco-tourism is also becoming popular, and so are adventures like kayaking. The most commonly caught fish types include redfish and seatrout. There are still hundreds of other species roaming around in the seawaters surrounding the Port. Fishing is efficiently supplemented by the growing tourism industry and you can see that in the increasing number of resorts along the beach. Special day celebrations attract thousands of tourists and we have our hands full with guests. Try our freah steamed shrimp or order up a dozen of our great oysters on the half shell while you relax on our new outdoor covered bar. You can relax and watch the ships and fishing boats come in from our new bar. So come on out and enjoy the sea air and drink your favorite beverage on the dock.
