THREAD 1) If you’ve wondered, THIS is where the trash you see on the street ends up. It doesn’t just disappear. Rain washes it down stormwater drains, which typically feed in the bayou (#BuffaloBayou in this instance). Our waterways shouldn’t be trash heaps. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
2) Just a few feet from that waste puddle, filtered stormwater cascades over rocks to reach #BuffaloBayou. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
3) In the sandbar next to that stream, the stones tell part of #Houston’s history. You have Pleistocene-era sandstone, older oyster shell-concrete and the modern concrete mix, which uses gravel. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
4) Plenty of animals call the area around #BuffaloBayou home as well. These look to be beaver tracks and we saw gnawed-off branches nearby. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
5) We saw dozens of egrets and herons, as well as a handful of hawks. I was able to spot a couple of turtles before they dove out of view. #KHOU11 #HTownRush #BuffaloBayou
6) As life-giving as it is, we all know how destructive the power of #BuffaloBayou can be. Here, it forged a new path, cutting through land to create an island. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
7) There is so much more to show you from our epic six-hour, 17-mile trip down #BuffaloBayou and up #WhiteOakBayou, but it will have to wait a bit. In the meantime, here’s where the two bayous merge, which happens to be where we got a much appreciated shower. #KHOU11 #HTownRush
