Toledo Bend Reservoir

As we drove down a hill towards the border between Texas and Louisiana today we came to a low bridge crossing the Toledo Bend Reservoir, the largest man-made reservoir in the South. Because of the continuing drought in the South though, the water level was so low that all of the forest trees from when they originally flooded the Sabine River back in the late 1960's were all quite visible. As far as the eye could see there were tree trunks sticking out of the water. In the foreground of the photo are birds that appeared to be small cormorants.
