Bryan County, Oklahoma

Around 70 miles North of Dallas is The Red River and the Texas – Oklahoma border. With my family visiting town we thought it would be fun to travel north and venture into “The Sooner State”. On the way we visited Denison, TX. The hometown of General Dwight D Eisenhower before crossing Carpenter’s Bluff Bridge.

This is Carpenter’s Bluff Bridge. Built in 1910 it was one of the primary crossing routes between Texas and Oklahoma across the Red River. It was built as a railroad bridge for the Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf (MO&G Line)
This is Carpenter’s Bluff Bridge. There is a now a new modern car bridge running parallel to it making the original structure pedestrian only.
The Red River shown in this photo is 1300 miles long. It starts in two branches in the Texas Panhandle and moves east before flowing into Louisiana. The state border between Texas and Oklahoma is defined by this River.
Despite Texas having over 14” of rain already so far this year the water level here seems very low. Hopefully it can increase as we move further into spring.

Howdy, my name’s Matt. I recently moved across the Atlantic from Britain to Dallas, Texas. On arrival I thought it would be fun to try something new and enter the world of photo blogging.
