Caddo Lake State Park, Karnack, Texas Cypress Swamp - Arrival - 1
This is the beginning of a series of videos about Caddo Lake State Park, Texas. Caddo Lake is located in far east texas and far Northwestern Louisiana. The lake actually straddles the border. The state park was built in the depression era by the Civilian Conservation Corps and their legacy is seen everywhere in the park. There are several intact structures that they left behind.
Caddo Lake is the largest cypress swamp in the south and possibly the largest in the United States. Caddo Lake is also the only Natural lake in the state of Texas. There are backwaters, bayous and sloughs to explore, everywhere. This video is simply a drive to and through the park to our campsite, later videos we will explore the trails and CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) built structures. We will also explore the waters out in the bayou, as well as, in the swamps and ponds. Caddo Lake State Park, Texas is one of the most picturesque parks we have been to, second only to Enchanted Rock. WE will have to go back when there is a little more green color in the cypress trees.

Dallas, Texas of United states. History, Economy etc
Dallas is a city in Texas of U.S. state. The city's population ranks ninth in the U.S. and third in Texas after Houston and San Antonio. Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.
In 1819, the Adams-Onís Treaty between the United States and Spain defined the Red River as the northern boundary of New Spain, officially placing the future location of Dallas well within Spanish territory. The area remained under Spanish rule until 1821, when Mexico declared independence from Spain, and the area was considered part of the Mexican state. In 1836, Texians, with a majority of Anglo-American settlers, gained independence from Mexico and formed the Republic of Texas. John Neely Bryan established a permanent settlement near the Trinity River named Dallas in 1841. The origin of the name is uncertain. Dallas was formally incorporated as a city on February 2, 1856.
Dallas is a major destination for Mexican immigrants. The southwestern portion of the city, particularly Oak Cliff is chiefly inhabited by Hispanic residents. The southeastern portion of the city Pleasant Grove is chiefly inhabited by black and Hispanic residents, while the southern portionof the city is predominantly black. Dallas and its suburbs are home to a large number of Asian residents. Christianity is the most prevalently practiced religion in Dallas (78%), Dallas's Jewish population is the largest of any city in Texas.
Furthermore, a large Muslim community exists in the north and northeastern portions of Dallas, as well as in the northern Dallas suburbs. The oldest mosque in Texas is in Denton, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Downtown Dallas. The oldest mosque in Dallas is Masjid Al-Islam just south of downtown. There is also an Islamic Center in Irving.
The Dallas area has the highest concentration of colleges and universities in Texas. In addition to those in the city, the surrounding cities also has a number of universities, colleges, trade schools, and other educational institutions.

AROUND THE CITY
Central Dallas is anchored by Downtown, the center of the city, along with Oak Lawn and Uptown, areas characterized by dense retail, restaurants, and nightlife. The city was founded at the location of a white rock crossing of the Trinity River.
The city uses a council-manager government. 14 council members serving as representatives to the 14 council districts in the city.
Dallas's skyline has several buildings over 700 feet in height. Most of the notable architecture in the city is from the modernist and postmodernist eras. Iconic examples of modernist architecture include Reunion Tower, the JFK Memorial, I. M. Pei's Dallas City Hall and Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. Good examples of postmodernist skyscrapers are Fountain Place, Bank of America Plaza, Renaissance Tower, JPMorgan Chase Tower, and Comerica Bank Tower.
Dallas's key to growth came in 1873 with the building of multiple rail lines through the city. As Dallas grew and technology developed, cotton became its boon and by 1900 Dallas was the largest inland cotton market in the world.
The economy of Dallas, TX is specialized in Management of Companies & Enterprises; Construction; and Mining, Quarrying, Oil, Gas Extraction. Dallas and nearby Fort Worth were developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle, and later oil in North and East Texas.
Dallas developed as a strong industrial and financial center, and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways, and the construction of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
