This is East Texas

I am putting together a sampling of what Texas is all about, its rugged beauty and variety of terrain. It has it all, mountains, beaches, forests, prairies, deserts, and of course big cities. As I find them I will be adding them to this blog, so this will be a work in progress for a little while.

I consider East Texas to be from Texarkana down roughly to the north Houston area extending only about 200 miles to the west.
My home is in a transistion area between central and east Texas but it is formally considered East Texas.

This is the Caney Creek that flows through the ranch and dairy lands of Hopkins County Texas. I noticed today that the water was covered solid with a light green algae most likely from the lack of rain and stagnation. So, I stopped a few times to take a shot of it over the bridge, I have never seen so much green! This is my evening photo, it looked entirely different in the morning.

Those are some inspiring photographs. Only California offers the same variety of "mountains, beaches, forests, prairies, deserts, and of course big cities". And though I live in California, I'm a native Texan. Hope you add more scenic pictures!
