The Texas Hill Country, a cave-riddled limestone uplift overlain by oak and juniper woodlands also known as the Edwards Plateau, provides the setting for Pedernales Falls State Park. This scenic region of Texas has traditionally been favored by both ranchers and biologists for its terraced, grass-covered landscape and abundant springfed creeks and rivers. While the Texas Hill Country is splendid any time of year, it really stands out during springtime wildflower blooms when millions of bluebonnets, paintbrush, bee balm, and firewheels blanket the countryside like woven tapestries.
