Texas is beautiful. Highways are covered with wildflowers - thanks to Lady Bird Johnson - wife of President Lyndon Johnson. She established a Wildflower Project for the state of Texas

Bluebonnets are as Texas as Pecan Pie and George Strait

The Hill of Crosses is 10km north of Šiauliai, 2km east off the road to Joniškis and Rīga, in the village Jurgaičiai. To get here, take 1 of 8 daily buses from Šiauliai bus station to Joniškis or 1 of 8 to Rīga & get off at the Domantai stop, from where it is a 2km walk to the hill. Look for sign 'Kryžių kalnas 2' on the A12. By taxi, the return taxi fare is ~ Lt30, with a 30-min stop at the hill; ask Šiauliai tourist office or your hotel/hostel to order one for you to avoid being ripped off.

A ride through the country always brings pretty things to look at~
