But back to thread topic. I have been to the Hill Country numerous times and I am sorry but I do not remember seeing anything that was extraordinarily more breathtaking than back home in East Texas. Some of you act like we are comparing the Rockies to the Ozarks.

The Hill Country is one compact area, but East Texas is about the size of Tennessee! So I doubt that most people here have seen enough of it to be completely certain of its lack of hills.

Thank you. But killeen or bell county can be as green as dfw if spring rain is plentiful.

But why get a travel guide when you can see with the eyes god blessed you with for yourself. Yes killeen is prairie but it sits in Hill Country thats why it looks like the rest of Hill Country.

As this discussion has pointed out....the definition of Hill Country is subjective...it varies from person to person.....I think the definition even varies from government agency to another as Texas Parks and Wildlife puts Bell County in Hill Country.

I am aware of that little middle school level comprehension map you are talking about. It just bunches a whole bunch of different looking regions into one group for whatever reason. According to that map Killeen may be in the "Prairies and Lakes" but it still does not look like DFW. Mrfoe is right in saying that more closely resembles the Hill Country.

Im not saying it looks like DFW....I think for now I will use a hybrid definition of Texas Highways and Texas Parks and Widlife as the two agencies don't agree on what is Hill Country.However, I think Killeen is also Prairies and Lakes.

For what it is worth, Killeen also sits on the Edwards Plateau along with Austin and the Hill Country.
