This small community (pronounced LAY-key) is in one of the most scenic areas of the rugged Edwards Plateau. Elevations range from 1,500 to 2,400 feet with deep, dramatic canyons cut by the Frio and Nueces rivers. Archaeological excavations show evidence of prehistoric civilizations. At the time of the first Spanish explorers, the game-rich area was inhabited by the Comanche, Apache and Lipan Apache tribes.
During the spring and summer, visitors enjoy tubing the clear waters of the Frio River and, in the fall, seeing the beautiful hues of red and gold autumn leaves on the tree-covered hills.
