Butts Lake has water this year

On the west side of the Pumpkinvine, a mile north of Abshire Park, there is small wetlands called Butts Lake. (Butts Lake in Google Maps.) At many times in the past, the area was so dry that it looked more like a field than wetlands. But this spring, the lake is full of water. Riders or walkers on the trail can see the lake better at this time of years because the leaves haven’t come out yet. When I was there this afternoon, there were many ducks making a racket on the lake, seemingly enjoying the spring weather as I was.

Here are a few shots of the lake today, April 12, 2011.
