Braes Bayou

Double Helix

In Houston a bayou is a glorified drainage ditch.  I live close to Braes Bayou and often use its hike and bike trail.  Sometimes I take my camera along and shoot while walking or bike riding.

  1. The glory of these glorified drainage ditches is quite worthwhile visiting – I like that so many areas alongside bayous in Houston are parks.

  11. It may be just a drainage ditch, but it’s neatly kept up. The other photos bridge, etc. enhance it.

    I’m quite sure I’ve said this before, Ron, but THIS may be my favorite: colorful, urban, beautiful
