Texas Topography

Texas is derived from the Caddo Indian word "teysha" or "tejas", which means "friend" or "hello friend".  The southeast Texas terrain consists of Gulf Coast barrier islands and cypress swamps, gradually rising to a coastal plain.  The cliffs along the Balcones Escarpment in central Texas mark the eastern edge of the Texas hill country, which gradually merges into prairie country in northern and western Texas.  Popular visitor attractions include Big Bend National Park, Padre Island National Seashore, and Johnson Space Center in Houston.
