Terrible Texas Drought Reveals Sometimes Islands on Lake Travis

Join my expedition to the Sometimes Islands on Lake Travis. I shouldn’t be able to get here, but the Texas drought of 2011 revealed and created a land bridge to the islands. Find out the ruins and treasures that I discovered, and get a glimpse at what the Colorado River may have looked like before Mansfield Dam was built near Austin, Texas.

Learn more about the drought and its effects on our parks and environment with my other video, Texas Drought 2011 Scorches McKinney Falls State Park.

Commander Ben signing off…and saying farewell to 2011…and hopefully good-bye this terrible Texas drought too!
