My girlfriend and I decided to hike Terry Hershey Park from the parking lot near Memorial Drive out to Beltway-8 and back.  Unfortunately, we were forced to turn around about 1/2 mile short of the beltway due to flooding.

I was blown away with how high the bayou water level was from recent rainstorms.  There were several low spots along the trail filled with water than we either had to circumvent or walk through.  It was still nice to get some miles in.
