We walked at Falcon State Park yesterday. It was very interesting--and, to our pleasant surprise, a cloudy morning. With bits of drizzle toward the end.
Falcon State Park is close to the Falcon Dam, a dam for flood control and water conservation on the Rio Grande River. It is part of our nation's border with Mexico. It's a fairly large lake, more shallow than Lake Amistad farther inland. The dam was built in the 1960's if I remember correctly, and when Hurricane Beulah came through the dam was filled up in record time. (Beulah camped and loitered, raining like crazy, instead of passing through and disappearing like a normal storm.)
