Gorman Creek Before the Drought

Here’s another shot taken during the Texas Landscape Safari last April. Gorman Creek is a spring fed stream running northeast into the Colorado River just below Bend, Texas. Most every spring that I can recall, this creek is usually flowing strongly through its two mile length, creating the magnificent Gorman Falls as it cascades into the Colorado. This year’s drought came early and hit us hard. I suspect this is as much water as we’ll see in Gorman Creek until the winter rains return.
