So, surprisingly, it was three columns about wilderness and bayou that piqued my interest. In 1952, Sig wrote about Jimmy Martyn's 28,000 acre farm, off of Red Bluff Rd. A decade later Humble Oil literally bought the farm. Eventually NASA got some of the Humble property. In the 70's, preservation efforts stopped further development and the remaining wilderness is now Armand Bayou Nature Center.
The center is where I hope to be on Saturday. A small girl will be in tow, so we'll see how this trip goes.
