Hill Country Sunset

There’s a great little spot located on FM 1431 just east of Kingsland, Texas where the road climbs about 300 feet to a pull-off which looks over Lake LBJ and Packsaddle Mountain. In the early fall months the sun sets directly behind these hills providing one of the best sunset locations in the state. This is one of my favorite locations to bring folks on the Texas Landscape Safari where the access is right off the road and the view is spectacular.
