Derek and I go to the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center all the time. It is one of our favorite places in Houston. It is a good place to get away from the “city life.”
Last Friday I saw the Arboretum post on Facebook that their new Ravine Trail was open to the public. It was a beautiful day so Derek and I headed that way.
The Ravine Trail was always there, but its been closed for the last three years, and closed for eight out of the last 13 years.
It was closed because it was previously unsafe to the public. The trail goes over a ravine and it has experienced flooding and erosion.
The trail is different than the others at the Arboretum. This trail is a switch back trail with changes in elevation. There are two bridges that go over the ravine and the views are nice. When we were looking at the ravine we saw a snake trying to eat some fish!
I was able to write about the new trail for work. I am glad that I was able to use the photos I took for the article. You can read it here: https://www.chron.com/neighborhood/memorial/news/article/Houston-Arboretum-Nature-Center-opens-new-13807184.php
