Barksdale AFB, LA. East Reservation

Today is our last day at Barksdale and the first day the East Reservation has been open since we have been here due to hunting season. Since it had been 15 or so year I wanted to explore it again. The reservation has over 16,000 acres with several lakes, roads and hiking trails. You begin by obtaining the combo to the access gate, then head out to parts unknown.

Flag Lake is the largest and also home to many White Egrets.

Most of the roads are well grated, but some can be challenging, especially after some rain.

But most take you to some beautiful places.

Covered most of the reservation in just a few hours. It was a great day out in the backwoods, a far cry from open spaces of the west, but still nice to see different country.
In the morning it's off to Mississippi for a couple of days, we'll be checking out the history around Vicksburg, so check back for that. Until then, keep lovin your life as we do ours.
