Lake Merideth

North of Amarillo
near Sanford, Texas

Checking the weather showed the winds would be out of the east.  We were low on fuel and it was to be 76 miles to the next town where I could fill up.  So we took advantage of the wind, set sail, left Dead Indian Creek a day early and blew back into Texas.  We arrived at our next camp not a minute too soon for as soon as we parked the wind started up with some serious intent.  
It brought with it that night a good rain storm.
The next day was clear and bright with a cold wind.     

The forecast shows it will warm up this weekend getting back into the 70's and then 80's.  But the wind will still be with us.  Such is life as wind it seems is ever-present for the Texas panhandle and most of Oklahoma. 

There are several campgrounds around this large reservoir (no good backstory with lake as was with Dead Indian) but it is free and even has showers for that price.  Imagine that!
Thank you National Forest Service.


  1. We're heading in the opposite direction; cold rainy weather and possible nighttime frosts forecast for this weekend. A free shower? I'm trying hard to imagine that but haven't seen anything like it in a very long time.

  2. Did you take a picture of the only tree for miles?

  3. The sky looks super in your pic!
