Super High Resolution Panoramas of the Toledo Bend Lake Area

Try hooking your computer to your flat-screen TV for REALLY  LARGE  PIX!

We're now using technology developed by Carnegie Mellon University and NASA and first used on the Mars Rover to produce some high resolution panoramas of the Toledo Bend area. We call it GIGA-BEND because these images are in the Gigapixel class (as your digital camera takes pictures in the Megapixel class)

Scene off Highway 191 South of Highway 6

This is one of my favorite scenic areas on the lake - about 5 miles South of Toledo Town. Can you find the turtles mating in the picture? How about the Great Egret snacking on a minnow? Is that an alligator?

Cormorant & Egret Rookery

Cormorant and Egret Rookery on Toledo Bend Lake. These social birds mix together here every Spring to have and raise their young. Occasionally one can spot a Great Blue Heron among them. In the snapshots, note the birdhouse in the background about 1/2 mile away.

Pendleton Bridge & Causeway From LA

Shot from the Louisiana side, it is 3.25 miles to the Texas coastline at this point on the lake. The snapshot zooms to Pendleton Bridge - the border between Texas and Louisiana is the Sabine River, running under the bridge.

Pendleton Bridge & Causeway From TX

Shot from the Texas side, it is 3.25 miles to the Louisiana coastline at this point on the lake. The snapshot zooms to Pendleton Bridge - the border between Texas and Louisiana is the Sabine River, running under the bridge - in case you didn't know - the river still "flows through" the lake and under the bridge. There is also a single boat that, because of its speed and direction, managed to get into the panorama 4 times!
