Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge west of Austin, TX (Picture a Day January 20, 2010)
One of the precious few national wildlife refuges in the entire state of Texas, the Balcones Canyonlands are located on the edge of the Hill Country to the northwest of Austin. The Rimrock Trail at Doeskin Ranch climbs from the creek below up to the top of the flat-topped 'balconies' for which the reserve is named.
