Willow Loop Texas Hill Country Scenic Drive
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.

Bluebonnets and a more expensive fence. This place is owned by a gentleman rancher, probably from San Antonio or Austin.

These granite boulders are fairly unique in the Hill Country. But keep in mind that we are only a few miles east of the famous Hill Country batholith know as Enchanted rock. The geologic event that created enchanted rock is the same event that left this granite and the pink marble seen along Willow Loop Scenic Drive.
In fact anyone visiting this area needs to stop by and experience Luckenbach.
