Getting ready to leave Lake Whitney

The snow is long melted here at Thousand Trails Lake Whitney in Texas. We’ve had a few sunny days and now they are predicting rain and possibly more snow on Tuesday. Since we are leaving tomorrow we will miss the snow if they get some. Fine with me, we got to enjoy the pretty falling snow already!

I thought I would post a few photos of the park without the snow. I’ve also included a couple pics of a fox we saw here at the park. Unfortunately the fox shots are a bit fuzzy, I took them through our back window at dusk and the fox was moving. It was pretty cool, I was computing and looked up, glancing out the window, and there was the fox trotting down the street! I’ve never seen a fox in the wild before. Happily the camera was right beside me so I grabbed it and snapped away. :o)

Snow at Thousand Trails Lake Whitney

Well...our best estimate is we got about 5-6 inches of snow yesterday. Today it is slowly melting away. The roads in the park are manageable, I drove down to the laundry room this morning and didn't slip too much. Of course an empty pickup is the worst on snow but I didn't have far to drive. I had to laugh when I got back from doing laundry...our neighbor obviously enjoyed the snow...his creation is pictured below along with a couple pics of our trailer in the snow.

Lake Whitney

About a week ago we traveled north to the Thousand Trails Lake Whitney preserve. The trip took us by Austin and Waco, Texas, all areas we hadn't seen before. Whitney Texas, the closest town to this park, is a nice little spot. A good sized grocery, a few restaurants, all we need! The park we are at is very nice, and very big. We haven't had the best of weather since we arrived. There has been a couple sunny days but also a few days of rain, some rather cold days... however, you can see by the photos and it turned to snow!
