Today's Place to Daydream About: Caddo Lake
"Great Raft," a huge logjam which blocked the Red River. This logjam was first carefully described in 1806, but it may have been mentioned by Spanish explorers in the 1500s; in the early 1800s it was more than a hundred miles long. This is the obstruction the Corps of Engineers was trying to clear from the Red River when they accidentally drained the lake.
