Woah, that looks COLD!!

When I visited it was middle of summer there but at the top just below zero centigrade. A bit colder than Darwin. ;-)a

Im curious about the trees in the water there. Whats the story there?

Caddo Lake is a natural lake but it has an interesting history. Hope this isn't too long of an answer.

In the early days it was a swampy lowland where several bayous converged and fed the Red River. Seasonal flooding would make it into a lake but only temporarily. In the 1800s the Red River near Shreveport, LA became clogged by fallen trees. This log jam was miles long and called The Great Raft. Eventually the military dynamited it out of existence but it took years. This was a politically motivated move and killed the riverboat trade to Jefferson, TX, making Shreveport the major port.

The lake went back to being a swamp until an oil company built the first over water oil rigs. They needed more water to service the oil rigs so they also used politics to have an earthen dam built at the previous level. The dam eventually failed and was replaced by concrete.

From what I have read, these trees are hundreds of years old so the story above is relevant to their existence. They sprouted when the water was low and survived the rest.

This area of the lake is sparse but to the west they get thicker and thicker.

Many thanks Charles, very interesting story and that now makes the picture more meaningful to me. Thanks again for taking the time to explain that.

Some radio/tv/phone towers up on the mountain, useful for testing focus but mostly I just like watching the clouds roll over the top.

The water makes such a hard edge from the bluish haze that it stops your eye as you scan down the photograph.
