2017 Cedron Creek Lake Whitney

A short 2 day  trip to Lake Whitney.  We were going to look at a tow dolly.  The seller happened to live near the Corp of Engineers park at Cedron Creek Lake Whitney.   The park is well kept with gravel pads for your RV’s, water and electric.  A dump station is available.  There are also tent sites, some of which have water hook ups.

The water level was real low so the enclosed beach area was quite small.  Too cold to swim in February anyway.

I had to wait forever to get him to take off.  So beautiful to see him in flight.

2017 Benbrook Lake

It is not to difficult to decide to go camping when you hear a beautiful weather forecast.  Besides our puppy Nala turned one year old on the 5th of February so we decided to try another Corp Of Engineer Park.  Holiday Park on Benbrook Lake offers cement pads, covered picnic areas, and a fire ring.  Water and electric provided at RV sites.

Couldn’t get over how twisted up this tree was so I just had to take a picture.

Benbrook Lake Sunrise

Can never beat the gorgeous sunrise.  What a great start to a great day.

Benbrook Lake was quite low, I’d guess at least 10 feet.  Tree stumps everywhere.  Boaters beware.  Once the water is up to its normal levels, navigating a boat through the narrow passages could be quite tricky.

Everyone needs birthday gifts.  What do you get a puppy who has everything?  Food and toys..

Nala’s first taste of canned dog food.  It didn’t take her much time at all to finish it.

We really enjoyed ourselves at Benbrook Lake.  Although it wasn’t as picturesque as other parks we have been to, we always love being outdoors.
