Something About Karnack

Named after an ancient city in Egypt, Karnack was the childhood home of Claudia Taylor (Lady Bird) Johnson, former first lady of the United States. Today, it serves as a gateway to the mystical Caddo Lake. Covering 26,000 acres, the lake is a swampy maze winding through overgrown cypress, with 42 miles of channel marked to keep boaters from getting lost. One theory is the lake formed behind a Red River logjam. Another is that it resulted rom the 1811 earthquake centered on Missouri, a theory similar to a Caddo Indian legend that says the lake was formed at night by angry spirits shaking the earth.
