About the Author

Charlie Llewellin moved to Austin from the UK in 1991 and became involved in the city's music scene, playing in bands and working for the South by Southwest music festival. Driving to play in other cities exposed him to the state's varied landscapes. He soon took to exploring Texas on his own, from the pine woods to the desert and from the prairies to the coast. In the 2000s, Charlie worked for Texas Monthly magazine, to which he contributed many outdoors articles. A writer, photographer, and traveler, he now lives in Blanco, from where he continues to wander the Hill Country and beyond.
