The Price Of Rice

Rice farmers south of here have contracts entitling them to water from Lake Travis. Combine that with a 7yr drought and a whole new world became available for exploration (this  lake-bed is near Spicewood). The water contracts have finally buckled under severe pressure from people who live around the lake. So the view may look very different next year. In the meantime you can hike, camp, … and motorcycle through one of nature’s hidden gems that comes and goes with changes in climate and the evolving business of feeding the human race.
