Field Report (NE Texas / SW Arkansas)

I, and some friends, spent this past weekend in Northeast Texas and Southwest Arkansas. It was VERY cold all weekend with lows getting down to the mid 20s at night and highs in the low 40s during the day. There really isn’t much to report. Other than some deer and a couple of coyotes nothing of interest was observed.

We camped near Caddo Lake and spent our days in that vicinity. We spent Saturday night near Boggy Creek in Fouke, Arkansas. This area, as most of you know, is famous for a series of events that took place there in the 1960s. These events were the basis for the film “The Legend of Boggy Creek”. Sightings continue in the area to this day.

I’ve attached a couple of pictures of the Caddo Lake area to the right. It is really a beautiful place. What is it about Spanish moss that makes everything so mysterious and creepy looking? I don’t have pictures of the Boggy Creek area as I was only there at night.
