Green Goo

It’s the place that nightmares are made of, the kind of place you don’t want to be after dark. No, I’m not talking about the IRS office, but a place almost as bad.

It’s the swamp. A waterway full of green goo and gators so big they could swallow your mother-in-law whole. (Not mine, she’s nice). If you don’t think there aren’t alligators in there, feel free to take a swim. I’ll be dialing 911 as you step in.

This is another view from a cloudy morning at Brazos Bend State Park, southwest of Houston. They are known for alligators and all other marsh related wildlife in this floodplain off the Brazos River. Big Creek also meanders diagonally across the park as it creates sloughs and cutoff meanders called oxbow lakes. It’s a great place for bird watching, fishing and gator dodging too.

  1. HOME!!! Being a short and green Toad, though, I don’t even think I’d make a mouthful for the aforementioned ‘gator, so I’ll keep my flippers out of this one if it’s all the same to you. I do have an evil ex-stepmom available if the ‘gators go hungry, just mention it and I’ll FedEx her on down. GREAT shot here Tim, fan-flippin-tastic my friend!!!

  2. Thanks Scott. The light made it challenging, but the scenery was great. We did see lots of eyes watching from the water, though I not sure that exact spot had something at that moment. Just the same, I wasn’t testing the waters!
