Bay on Lake LBJ. Deer are also plentiful around Inks Lake at the golf course and at
the State Park.

have rules about not feeding the deer.

In the spring from the middle of March through most of June the
Highland Lakes area turns into a virtual paradise with the fields of wildflowers. First,
the Bluebonnets bloom, and they are quickly joined by the red Indian Paintbrush flowers
for beautiful fields of red and blue. As these flowers
start to fade the fields are taken over by other red, yellow and white flowers. You have
to see them to really appreciate how beautiful these fields of flowers are.
