Kathleen and Mike took the boys to Dallas this week to go to Six Flags and a Texas Ranger baseball game. We were all set to stay home and babysit dogs. OK, so let’s go check out this little lake near Spearman – Palo Duro Reservoir. Just a night. Take the trailer. Be nice to get away. The lake was so full. Over the road that went on one side of it. And after a very rainy night. Then we decided to travel to Perryton to Lake Fryer. Another full lake, going over the spillway. Very nice clean place. I would love to go back and stay again.
OK, that was two lakes, two nights. I planned for two nights away. Brought a little extra food and clothes. So, let’s try another lake. Hmmm. Check out Lake Marvin near Canadian in the Gene Howe Wildlife Management area. Sooooo, I was not impressed with this little lake. It was full! And a bit dirty. No one was there. So we opted out of staying there. But I did snap a picture of this cool old windmill! Headed out to try Lake McClellan. It is south of Pampa really close to I-40 and Groom. This was another nice lake. We had electricity and water (as we did at the others). And another lake that was full to nearly overflowing! This redheaded woodpecker was really squawking at us! And the fog rolled in this morning! WOW! That was enough lakes for now. After we got home we wished we had gone to Baylor Lake. Next time.
