Canyon LakeNovember 4, 2006
My boys spent most of the week with their grandparents at Canyon Lake, which is north east of San Antonio. While I was there to pick them up I took a couple of pictures to share with you.
Here in this part of Texas we don’t come by lakes easily. Canyon Lake is the result of a dam built on the Guadalupe River. The dam, built by the Army Corp of Engineers, took 6 years to build and it took another4 years for the lake to fill.
The lake now has 80 miles of shoreline. It provides flood protection to the lower Guadalupe River and is a popular water recreational area. My boys had fun fishing and I got to share in their Catfish catch Thursday for lunch. Yum-m-m!
