What a weekend it was here!
Because….(dare I say it? Do I even dare?!)…
…It was COLD here in Houston!
I know! Right?!
It’s been awesome! It finally feels like fall!
Hisa and I were so excited about the cool weather Saturday, that we went to the Armand Bayou Nature Center in south-east Houston to hike around on some of the trails there. We’d heard a lot about the place, but never been there, so since the weather was so wonderful we thought we’d finally check it out.
It was a really nice place too! It’s not huge, but there are three really pretty trails, each about a mile and a half long with bayou overlooks every so often. It was much more wooded than I thought it would be, which was great, because I love hiking in forests with a lot of shade.
One of the bayou overlooks.
We saw quite a bit of wildlife while we were there too. We saw deer four different times, and we also saw some turtles, herons, and jumping fish. There’s supposed to be alligators at the bayou as well, but I think it was too cool out for them, because they weren’t out when we were there (or we just didn’t see them…creepy…).
Here’s Hisa pretending to look at something in the woods.
And here’s me pretending to be hanging from a tree…that I’m obviously not hanging from.
What a cool couple we are, right?
It was a beautiful place, and a fun way to enjoy the great weather. I’m sure we’ll go back again sometime to hike the one trail we missed this time around.
