Female elk pauses on a ridgeline at Brushy Top, outside of Blanco, Texas.
Would you like to wake up to this morning view?
I'm writing a lifestyle article about a sand-colored ridge-top home in Brushy Top, a former big game ranch, now a wildlife preserve and residential development outside of Blanco in the Texas Hill Country.
The homeowners chose the location to capture an extended vision of space; and to experience life among the elk, blackbuck antelope, scimitar-horned oryx and other wildlife that frequent the water troughs and mineral licks outside their back door.

You never know what you'll find in the Texas Hill Country.
