Mystic Lake Caddo - 25 pictures

Lake Caddo is a unique nature reserve that lies on the border of Texas and Louisiana. On its territory grow the largest cypress forests of our planet. Caddo - the only lake in Texas, formed by natural way. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, a river traffic jam was created on the Red River. Beavers living on the banks of the river, strengthened this congestion with their dams. Thus a dam formed, which blocked the movement of the river, and served as the beginning of the creation of the lake. Now it is a protected area with a unique nature.

The reserve is open all year round for tourists. But the best time to visit the lake is the end of October - the middle of November. At this time, cypresses change their color, and the forest looks unusually picturesque. In the reserve grows about two hundred bushes and trees. But the most popular for many years now use cypresses Bald Cypress. These cypresses, unlike their land relatives, belong to deciduous trees and for the winter they throw off their foliage. For this feature, and received their second name - bald. On the lake you can find specimens that are more than one hundred years old. Cypresses have a powerful root system. Thanks to her, the trees are not afraid of even the strongest hurricanes. The trunks of cypresses are often covered with numerous strands of Spanish moss. Moss is not a parasitic plant. He procures his own food from water and air. But still it harms trees, limiting them access to sunlight.

In one of the oldest Indian tribes there is a beautiful legend dedicated to the Spanish moss. Once a beautiful girl and a young man met in the forest. Young people fell in love with each other so much that they decided to leave the tribe and live together Rafal Olbinski art

on the shore of the lake. So they did. The couple was happy together. For days they wandered along the lake, admiring its beauty. But the time has come when the girl fell ill and died.

Over time, the hair turned gray, but remained hanging on the trees, keeping the memory of the eternal love of two people.

The woman has only one drawback

 When God created a woman, He earned himself late on the sixth day.

The angel, passing by, said: "Why are you working on it so long?"


And the Lord replied: "Have you seen all the parameters under which I should create it? It should be washable, but not made of plastic, have Alex Echo paintings

more than 200 moving parts, and they all need to be replaced. To be able to embrace several children at the same time, and to embrace everything from the bruised knee to the broken heart, and all this must be done with just one pair of hands. "


The angel was amazed: "Just one pair of hands ... it's impossible ... And this is a standard model? Too much work for one day ... Leave ... finish tomorrow".

"No," said the Lord. "I'm so close to completing my creation, which will be my favorite." She himself is healed and can work 18 hours a day. "

The angel came closer and touched the woman: "But, Lord, you made her so gentle."

"Yes, it is tender," said the Lord, "but I also made it strong, you can not even imagine what it can bear and overcome."


"And she can think?" asked the Angel.

The Lord replied: "She not only knows how to think, but also to persuade and negotiate."

Angel touched the woman's cheek ....

"Lord, it looks like this creature is proceeding! You have put too many burdens on it."

"It does not leak ... it's a tear," corrected the Lord.

"And this is for what?" asked the Angel.

She can cope with trouble and endure all the hardships of life.

She cries when she is happy and laughs when she is afraid.


She fights for what she believes.

I am happy with the success of my friends.

Touched by the wedding and the birth of a child.

Her heart is bursting with pain, when relatives or friends die, but she finds the strength to continue living.

She knows that kissing and embracing can heal a broken heart.

 She has only one drawback:
