UNT Eco Artist experience Lake LLELA

November 20, 2009 by mike swope

We’ll ACE thought a little water in the Elm fork would be a good thing, so you can see from this pic, 4000 plus cfs make our river into a lake, i.e…..LAKE LLELA!!!!

PB060034 We did the big loop and paddled the actual historic elm fork river channel too, it was a lot of fun and as a little extra we got a very close look at the horned eared owl…







We also go to paddle “over” the board walk and get an up close and personal tour of the island camp sites on the back side of LLELA, ant takers????



Of course we had to do the group photo thing too!




Stay tuned for the art show that this trip inspired at the UNT Campus 2010
