Thanks to Brain and our Friends at  UNT

& the Elm Fork Education Center for a enlightening

day of science and FUN!

20150611_112852

As you know the lake was up a little…OK a lot in fact

our friends at the Lake Ray Roberts Marina just opened!

20150611_102545

this trip was on a feeder creek west of the marina,

normally a few feet deep, today it was 10 to 12 feet.

20150611_102547

So in review Lake Ray Roberts is over pool currently!

20150611_103259

Water testing, and a mini paddle lesson later and we

were out having fun!

20150611_104846

We even got our detrashing of the lake on with some foam

20150611_111205

and got the group to poise for some camera time too!

20150611_112645_001

with UNT & EFEC for the fun times!

 

 

Some people are born to trash…
