As much as the bumper stickers would like you to think, Texas probably isn't about to secede from the Union. Instead, it exercises its independence from the shills in DC by demanding very little tax - including a levy of zero income tax on its residents.
Now this isn't a certainty, but it would appear that whatever money Texas accrues goes straight into its national parks, which are well-maintained, well-staffed, visually spectacular and really, really big. So without further ado, here are a few photos I took of some big Texan stuff.

There was also a big old waterfall, which falls over a big grotto called Hamilton Pool:
