The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is an escape from urban surroundings, tucked away surprisingly close to the hustle and bustle of the Galleria Area. This natural getaway is just inside the 610 Loop, off of Woodway Drive.
Exploring the trails can lead to some great surprises. In addition to the Arboretum’s many trails, the Nature Center has classrooms used by children and adults alike. There are nature camps and educational activities for children, and recreational classes and programs for adults. I visited the Arboretum every Tuesday to pick up produce from the Rawfully Organic Co-Op and again on Thursdays to attend a Yoga class.
The classroom walls are very colorful! I also go at least once a week to walk my dogs. They really enjoy walking the trails and getting to sniff the alluring smells of nature.
If ever I need a place to take some colorful photos of nature, the Arboretum is first on my list of places to go.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
