Kayak #2, Braes Bayou, MacGregor Park to Buffalo Bayou, May 2, 2020

For my second kayak trip I used my new bike trailer to bike down to MacGregor Park where I left my bike and started kayaking Braes Bayou east.  Braes Bayou is “channelized” west of here but from here east it is quite natural.

Fairly clean water but some debris
Pretty spot

At one point I took a side channel through a culver.

Pretty wild on the other side of the tunnel

I saw a little wildlife, mostly turtles and birds.

As the bayou nears Buffalo Bayou (within a mile or so) it opens up and becomes more industrial.

At this point I decided things were getting too commercial so I turned around and found a pull out spot in Mason Park.

I packed up the kayak and humped back to my bike in Macgregor Park.
