This has become my morning ritual--to wake up to catch dawn light show over downtown Houston from our 12th floor balcony overlooking Buffalo Bayou Park and Memorial Drive. It's like Forest Gump's proverbial "box of chocolates." This was taken about 6:45am this morning. This one, as was yesterday morning's, was particularly surreal due in part to the signature cloud effect associated with hurricanes--in this case Hurricane Paul's interaction with the Baja peninsula down in Mexico.

Skies - Texas Style and Size
From all places... Houston is the one that takes the award of the most amazing skies. Whether at sunrise, sunshine or dusk you will likely always be amazed by the clouds, colors and shapes of the Houston skies.
I moved here 17 years ago and I religiously run or bike on the trails of the Buffalo Bayou and Memorial Park. In my opinion 2 of the most beautiful urban parks in the U.S.
If you come to Houston do not miss them - you will be fascinated by the views to the downtown skyline and the magic right above you.
