Highland Lakes Bluebonnet Trail – While Texas may not generally get “cold” in the grand scheme of things, even in this relatively mild climate, spring means a rebirth. From the animals to the plants, the Texas Hill Country comes to life in spring and nowhere is this more apparent then on the Highland Lakes Bluebonnet Trail. A self guided tour created by 10 Hill Country communities including the city of Burnet, this trail makes its way through areas of stunning natural beauty especially in Spring. Burnet is officially recognized by Texas the “Bluebonnet Capital of Texas” and during the spring months celebrates the arrival of millions of Bluebonnets. Take in the Bluebonnet Festival or just take a drive and enjoy nature’s gift to the Hill Country each year.
The flowers have a history in Texas which dates back to the 1940’s when Mrs. Lady bird Johnson, wife to 36th president Lyndon Johnson took it upon herself to beautiful the roadsides of her home state and other cities around America by planting fields of Bluebonnets. Be sure to stop at the Lady bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
