Our tour of March 24-26, 2017, through the Llano area: I’m not going to cover what others have already said about major routes but will add observations about a few places. Pontotoc had a fair covering of bluebonnets that made for dramatic photos along with certain angles of the ruins.



We enjoyed RM 386 south from Fredonia, then taking RM 2618 east and RM 1900 south to SH 71. This route afforded numerous views of roadside blue, scattered spreads of blue behind the fence lines, and hilly vistas where one might take highway shots with sides of blue and some visual interest of curves, ups, and downs. It was a very pleasant ride, although not as colorful as SH 71 and SH 16 in and out of Llano.

The cemetery on the north side of SH 71 east of Art had plenty of bluebonnets, as it has in the past.

We did not see anything to merit a drive between RM 501 between Pontotoc and Cherokee; bluebonnets were sparse the entire route.

Several county roads in SE Llano County were worth exploring and yielded several good images behind fence lines, although the routes were not as resplendent as they were two years ago.

Park Road 4 at Inks Lake was not as well-lined in flowers as it was in 2015, but there were some rocky glades surrounding paintbrush in a couple of places on the eastern side of the winding road. These places should get good morning and evening sun and might be worth a photo outing. I will go back this week if I get the chance and see if I can capture something besides blue. The little roadside park on PR 4 did not look inviting from driving by, and we did not stop.
