In this last installment of my series on Camp Fire USA’s Camp El Tesoro, I want to focus on the authentic, vital habitat that exists in this part of Texas.
These images show Fall Creek at a low water stage. Fall Creek borders the camp, and leads to the Brazos River. This part of the country is characterized by exposed limestone, and is part of an ecological region called The Cross Timbers and Prairies of Texas. The creek attracts all kinds of wildlife who visit the area for a drink of water, a bite to eat, or a refreshing bath.
This is an inviting path amidst the natural trees and vegetation of the area. I can just imagine a group of campers eagerly exploring the camp grounds – I sure did!
This is a spot further along Fall Creek that I just fell in love with. Partly because I was tired and there was a nice, cool spot by the creek to sit and rest, but mostly because I was able to watch a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher!
I enjoyed my visit to camp El Tesoro and have been very happy to share my trip via Birder’s Lounge. Hope you have enjoyed it too, and feel a little closer in spirit to this special place in Texas.
