In January of 2014, my wife Pearl and I realized that our existing home in the Hill Country wasn't going to be able to handle our growing family and ourwork at home needs. While looking around the Lakeway area, we fell in love with the Firebird property which was built by the infamous Lindholm family in the late 70's. Unbeknownst to us from the street level, the home had a tremendous panoramic view of the entire Lakeway andLago Vista regions of Lake Travis. Over the years we have taken 1000's of photographs and videos to share with friends and family. Every time we would have people over we laughed as they used the view from the front yard as a backdrop for their Instagram and Facebook personas. We shot Christmas Card photos and Graduation Photos there when friends came calling. We decided we needed to share this view with the entire region and the state and the world at large. After researching modern methods of Live Cam streaming weI decided to partner with a very well-known brand in the space and LakeTravisCam was born. As one of a handful of pioneers in the streaming media business, we look forward to sharing this streaming Lake Travis Cam for your viewing pleasure.
The Texas Hill Country is a geographic region located in the Edwards Plateau at the crossroads of West Texas, Central Texas, and South Texas. Given its location, climate, terrain, and vegetation, the Hill Country can be considered the border between the American Southwest and Southeast.The region is notable for its karst topography and tall rugged hills of limestone or granite. Many of the hills rise to a height of 400-500 feet above the surrounding plains and valleys, with Packsaddle Mountain rising to a height of 800 feet above the Llano River in Kingsland. The Hill Country also includes the Llano Uplift and the second-largest granite dome in the United States, Enchanted Rock. Bound on the east by the Balcones Escarpment, the Hill Country reaches into the far northern portions of San Antonio and the western portions of Austin. As a result of springs discharging water stored in the Edwards Aquifer, several cities such as Austin, San Marcos, and New Braunfels were settled at the base of the Balcones Escarpment. The region's economy is one of the fastest growing in the United States. [Wikipedia]
