We just couldn't resist stopping and walking back and taking photos of this area! Thank goodness there was very little traffic on this frontage road, it allowed us plenty of access, not to mention views of roadkill up close and personal. *lol* I had to do a little research to learn a bit about Sulphur Creek and found the following:
Sulphur Creek rises where Bean Creek and the East Fork of Sulphur Creek converge. This spring-fed stream (it was bone dry when we saw it on March 14, 2010) flows northeast, through sandy beds in its upper reaches, for twenty miles to its mouth on the Lampasas River, 2 1/2 miles east of Lampasas. Its course crosses an area of the Grand Prairies, characterized by relatively flat to steeply sloping terrain surfaced by shallow and stony sandy and clay loams that support grasses and open stands of oak, live oak, mesquite, and juniper. A number of springs
lie along the course of Sulphur Creek, including Gold Spring, Gooch Spring, and Hancock Springs. Many of these were originally used by the Indians as watering holes.
Photos were taken with a NikonD5000 18-55mm lens.
