Our final county for this trip was Knox. To collect it we walked the event at Truscott Brine Lake. The lake is located on Bluff Creek, a south bank tributary of the north fork of the Wichita River, about three miles north and one and one-half miles west of Truscott, in Knox County, Texas. This lake is managed by the Corp of Engineer’s. It is a part of the Red River Chloride Control Project, which was designed to reduce chloride contamination of the Red River.
We stopped first to use the restrooms in the overlook area behind the office. We saw a herd of jackrabbits but I was so thrilled watching them I forgot to use my camera. We continued over the dam and parked at the kiosk to do the walk.
We were walking East right into the sunrise so there is reflection off the water and camera lens.
Once we got on top the dam I could take pictures to the side.
The turkey buzzards where sunning themselves on the dam in front of us.
The gauges for telling the depth of the water at the half way point of the dam.
After we turned around and headed back across the dam I spotted this Roadrunner.
View on the other side of the dam away from the lake.
This is the last “new” county until Thanksgiving when two events are scheduled.
