The Lower Colorado River Authority reports an unusual find at Lake Travis.
On Tuesday a fisherman found a 3 toÂ 4-foot-long dead alligator near Emerald Point.
An LCRA spokesperson says the alligator appears to have died from a propeller wound.
This is a veryÂ rareÂ animal to find in the area.
TheÂ LCRA believes it was a pet because Lake Travis is notÂ a habitat that alligators can likely survive in.
River Road in Canyon Lake crosses the Guadalupe River four times as it winds 10.6 miles between Loop 337 and Canyon Lake Drive in the picturesque Texas Hill Country. A great way to take in the skyscraper cypress trees and colorful limestone bluffs is by tubing down the river. Outfitters offer shuttles that will bring you back to where you started. The river banks are lined with camping sites, concession stands and restaurants. Traveltex.com
If you didnât read the title of this article, and if you just glanced at these pictures, what would you think that was? Perhaps a beautiful piece of artwork created by a child? Or maybe a tapestry of colorful fabric? Who would ever guess that is a patch of three billion tulips?
Yep, this is where much of the worldâs tulips are grown each year. These particular flowers are in Holland, and they will be sent to supermarkets all over the world to be sold. Altogether, Holland produces about nine billion tulips each year, which equates to more than one for each person on the planet.
As you can see, tourists often gather around the flowers to inhale the aroma and appreciate this once a year phenomenon. I bet this is an incredible sight to see in person. It is only a short time each year when the colors of the flowers are this vibrant and rich.
