I tried biking from the equestrian parking lot up to I-10 today. The HIGH WATER sign wasn't kidding. It looked like a mile or so of the trail was under water. I turned and went west from the parking lot and that was OK. The ditches were full but the trail was dry. It turned out to be a pretty good day for wildlife. On the way to the soccer fields on the west edge of the park a coyote crossed the path in front of me. I doubled back down Westheimer Parkway to the baseball fields and picked up the trails that lead on out past Hwy 99. I spotted two cottontails, a couple of rosette spoonbills, a flock of ibsis, several great egrets and one fairly large alligator that seemed to be stalking a great egret. I have noticed that after a good rain bird watching gets really good out here. As I was riding, I got to musing about the old saying "Does a bear go in the woods" (this is the family friendly version). My thought was - does a feral pig go in the woods. My answer would have to be no! He goes on the bike trail! This usually isn't a problem if you are paying attention and the scat is dry. If, however, it is wet and you are not paying attention, your bicycle wheel can spread it around in unwanted places. The pigs can be a real hazard. If a bear was around, he would probably do the same thing. G B Park is a great place to ride but it does benefit you to pay attention in even the quietest and most secluded places.
