headed up White Rock Creek, as you know it rained the

last couple of days so the side creeks were floatable…..

Yea!   we got farther to the west than

we have all last year………………..

We spotted some interesting high water marks too…

Upper right hand corner of pic…see the traffic barrel…..

it was 5 feet above us!

 

Sadly….

we also found some people fishing with a gill net strung

on from one side of the creek completely to the other side,

we were about to cut it when we discovered they we

launching a raft to recover their net…………..

Just in case your wondering… gills nets remain illegal

in all freshwater in Texas in 2013 , just FYI…

On the bright side we got a close up look at the new

infrastructure that includes the bridge…oops bridges…

Anyway…back at the creek we also discovered…..

Trash, yup you guessed it, it made us wonder…..

With all the equipment and money and man hours being

spent on the bridges, was any money allocated to help

resolve any of the past, current or future trash problems

with White Rock Creek??

Despite the challenges we face in learning to live in

harmony with each other and the our environment,

Paddling still provides the best form of recreation….

for the soul!
