Red River County
Caryl has a new favorite corner of Texas since March, 2008 when God led her and husband Ron there. She loves the rich history of Clarksville, the county seat and her new home, The Peaceable, and all of the Red River Valley. Yes, the rolling prairies and heavily timbered land helped win her affections, but its people endeared it all the more. Though not a native Texan, she claims she's a true blue, loyal lover of the great Lone Star State.
