Gov. Canyon and Hill Country State Natural Area

by Lorissa Di Giacomo

At Government Canyon we hiked a total of 7 miles and we got to see some awesome dino tracks . We camped at Hill Country SNA and it  was drizzly and damp but it was still fun . We had to get creative with our campsite because we were expecting heavy rainfall that night. Luckily our campsite survived and we came out dry . That following day was gorgeous the night before we hadn't really notice there were "mountains" behind us because it was so hazy and drizzly. But we were able to see them in the morning and they were beautiful.
