On my last visit to Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, one of my projects was to start recording photos of the different dams that I had access to. First was Quanah Parker Dam. The spillway has already been covered in previous posts, so here are a couple of new views.
Built in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps or ( CCC Boys ) , the architecture is a work of art!
Backing up the water flow from Quanah Creek the dam forms a magnificent lake which is beneficial to both man and animal.

  1. Very nice group of photographs, (Nice frams too)!

    That old dam really is a piece of art, back then people put their heart into what they did and things were built to last.

  2. Nice frames on these photos. This is a beautiful place to visit, I'm sure going to be back to this place again in the near future. Good work Parker!
