I am constantly on the lookout for local photography options. Although I had visited the Arboretum with my family in past years I had overlooked option until recently even thought it is less than 15 min from my home in West University. The gate opens at 7:00 AM, a bit late if you want be on site before sunrise. In any case, there are limited options for shots that would include views of the sky and landscape. One of the best locations is for open skies is the Meadow area reachable from the Outer Loop trail or the Inner Loop/South Meadow Trail.
You’ll discover a broad range of wild flowers and plants, especially in the Spring. I’ll share a few images.
In addition you’re likely to see several species of wildlife. Look for turtles at the large pond located in the meadow.
The Arboretum is a great place for a nature walk in the midst of one of the largest urban area in the United States. It’s a gem Houstonians should treasure. Visit and support your Arboretum.
