A day in the swamp

I know that for most people the idea of spending time in a swamp brings up images of alligators, snakes, and swarming mosquitoes. Things that should be avoided, especially when on vacation. But The small town of Uncertain Texas on the edge of Caddo Lake is one of those quite hide a ways that is so special that I feel guilty telling others about it.
Caddo Lake is a hunting & fishing paradise, but if you go off season the lake will transport you to a world that is filled with the sounds of birds, frogs and yes the rumble of distant alligators.  When the sun cuts through the spanish moss covered trees the water becomes a rippling mirror. And the town of Uncertain is a culture unlike any other in Texas.
