  Armand Bayou from Bay area park, Houston
by XenoHumph

This is a preserved bayou (= river/wet land in Southern US english) in the Clear Lake area (SE Houston, near NASA-Johnson Space Center). It is ideal to get an idea of what the area looked lke before Houston existed. It has several loop trails, each passing a different natural environment: wet-land, coastal forest, prairie. To observe birds and alligators, the best is to rent a canoe and paddle the many water ways. The center also organizes early morning canoe trips to watch the wild life ($20, reservation necessary).
if you do not want to pay the $3 to enter the Nature Center, you can always go to Bay Area Park just West of it, where they have a nice pier with a great view on the bayou.

Address: 8500 Bay Area Blvd, Houston, TX 77507
From Houston, take I-45 South, take exit 26 at Bay Area Boulevard, go east 7 miles just past Bay Area Park.
