Coppertone and I had been waiting for some time to see whether or not the drought would get to the point that the peninsula from Mansfield Dam Park would completely open up.  This weekend we drove by and saw a land bridge.

We had heard about the support bases for the tramway that was used to help construct Mansfield Dam being there and wanted to get a closer look.  We spent a few hours strolling about the spit of land that should be under water.  There are a few geocaches to find, shells to look at and a bit of history to view.

Only the smaller bases remain since the LCRA broke apart some of the larger ones to remove them as a boating hazard.
