A Damp Day

We did not get a lot of rain (only .07″) in our rain bucket at home. Regardless of the weather today, we had planned a road trip to Lake Lavon in Collin County.

The owl on the bench looked like it had a bib.
The fall colors were absolute beautiful on CR 125!

Lake Lavon! Lucky for us it did not rain hard at any time today.

White caps on the lake. A few cormorants were seen. Additionally and more exciting were the pair of Caracaras we saw on FM 455 in Denton County!

It was cool and damp day at the lake. So I did not even get out of the car except to quickly run in to the bathroom. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Almost home again on the back road east of Greenwood, one of my favorite roads. You can’t beat these colors.
The pecan tree had me puzzled with both the yellow and red leaves. Then I figured it out, the red was poison ivy. LOL.

It was a great damp day and we accomplished our mission to scope out the perfect camping spot for the spring. Now y’all know that the spring will have some some posts from Lake Lavon. πŸ™‚

  1. The fall leaf color along the roads is awesome. So beautiful. I wondered if that was poison ivy – so red.
    So what part of Lavon were you on? I have been around lots of it for horseback riding and retriever dog trials, dating back to the 80’s even. East side or west side, north of 455 or south or ?
    And 2 caracaras on my old stomping grounds! Wow!
    We have had non stop drizzle down here too. A couple hours ago it read .06″ but that is enough to make things grow and wildflower seeds to sprout. But prevent erosion like the big rains do. We are pretty saturated even with this small amount.

    1. Kathy, I thought about you as we drove on 455. And the wonderful times I had with you. We looked south of 380 at the Clear Lake park. I am looking forward to exploring some of the trails. I bet there will be interesting and cool stuff to find like you found at Legacy. πŸ™‚

  2. The fall color is stunning this year! I’ve never seen poison ivy so consistently and beautifully such a deep red. I haven’t been to Lake Lavon in many years – I’ll be very interested in your camping reports.
