Buffalo Bayou 1012

Houston Skyline

Houston Skyline

Buffalo Bayou is a 53 mile long waterway flowing across Houston, Texas and emptying into the Houston Ship Chanel.  Because Houston is only about 50 feet above sea level, the Bayous are the city’s main drainage system.  Some say a Bayou is just a fancy name for a ditch.  This particular section of the bayou is about a mile West of Downtown Houston and has been developed into an attractive park.  The downtown Houston skyline is visible from many spots around here. To the lower right of the downtown image is the massive Federal Reserve Bank building. That is where bureaucrats can create billions of dollars of money simply by pressing some keys at a computer.

      • I lived in Sugar Land for 5 years, is the Mucky Duck still open?

        • It is still around, but I have never been in there. It is also hard to park because Twin Peaks is around the corner.

    I did not that back ground about Houston … a 53 mile water way, and an urban one at that.

    • The city was established on the banks of that waterway.
