As the loop of Lake Meridian began to get back around to the dam and the last leg.. the park looked really good from the opposing shore..

Around the Back side of the lake we came across where the creek fed into the lake and a great view of the main beach back at the campground..

We got around to the far side of the lake and we did not see many other folks hiking…so we could let the pups off the leash for a mad minute of fun!

About 1/2 the way around the lake the Trail descends to the lake edge and Bee Ledge overlook.. a wonderful place on a beautiful day!

On Saturday we went into the town of Meridian proper. It is the county seat and has a wonderful square and old Texas style courthouse in the center of town.. I think maybe 1000 folks tops live there..
