They've been here for 300-million years, but you can't find them just anywhere. Paddlefish are being stocked in one of the most timeless lakes in Texas -- Caddo Lake. Implanted with radio transmitters, Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists will monitor this pre-historic species to see if water flows in the lake are suitable for its reintroduction. Special project partners are planning a Paddelfish festival in the East Texas town, Jefferson, May 8-9. For more information, go to http://www.CaddoLakeInstitute.us
Postcard From Texas Enjoy a time-lapse view of sunrise to sunset at Caprock Canyons State Park. Editor's note: Caprock Canyons State Park is one of the more magical places in Texas for me. I feel more connected to the earth while there. And the blue skies resonate above the red mountain sides like no other place I've seen in the state. Time can stand still in a remote place like this, so I focused on speeding it up a bit to see the canyons from another perspective. -- Bruce Biermann
Postcard From Texas Early in the morning is a great time to watch the wildlife at Brazos Bend State Park.
Postcard From Texas Turkeys hanging around a field, from a ranch in Donley County, Texas just south of McLean. Put a decoy or two out, do some turkey calls and before you know it here they come. Turkeys are very smart but they still occasionally fall for a decoy.
The stars at night really are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas. The University of Texas McDonald observatory is ranked among the top ten observatories in the world. Because of its location in the heart of the Davis Mountains, astronomers have some of the darkest and clearest night skies available in the United States. We take a look at the observatory, and what is done there for science and for the public.
