Ohh, the Frio, she's lookin good!

We've been blessed with quite a bit of rain over the off-season, and the Frio Canyon is busting out with wildflowers and greenery. The icing on the cake has been the 4+ inches of rain we received this week!

The Real County Sheriff's office called yesterday morning at 4am, letting us know that there was a 2 foot rise at the HEB camp. It's located north of Leakey about 10 miles, and is very near the headwaters of the Frio (East Prong). Sure enough, later yesterday afternoon, the River came down.
For those of you that are confused...that means the Frio came down to Leakey & Concan, causing a nice rise and great flow!

Sure is nice to finally have good news about our favorite place in the world!

FM 1120 just past the Alto Frio Baptist Encampment yesterday.

On the right hand side of this photo, is where Bee's Camp used to be. It's all been leveled, and is being turned into a subdivision.
