Things are dry in North Texas now and thus much of the creek that meanders through the ranch is also dry. This gives us the opportunity to explore areas we haven't seen before. So like Lewis & Clarke, Other Half, Lily, and I headed down the dry creekbed to discover new frontiers.

There was the mandatory game of fetch along the way.

The creekbed was a veritable newspaper with stories of life and death on the ranch. Footprints in the sand followed the drama of coyotes bringing down an unfortunate piglet.

As the piglet's story trailed out of the creek, we continued our journey down the creekbed, into the rising sun. We rounded the corner and this rose out of the mist.

Boulders captured a freshwater spring in the middle of the dry creek.  

 Lily took the plunge.

 "FISH!  There are FISH in here!"

How to drive a Border Collie crazy: chasing fish on a hot day!

And so it was that we discovered another Honey Hole on a ranch rich with mysteries still undiscovered.

Wow, makes that long drive worth it and increases the anticipation of living there, too! How gorgeous and what a gift to the little ones, two or four legged, in your family to get to enjoy and be amazed at all you find on your land.

Thanks for allowing us to join you. That water flow must have some punch in winter looking at the gouge marks in last photo.
