Chambers County borders Harris County on the east. It's about 40 miles on I-10 from my home. The county forms the eastern edge of Galveston and Trinity bays. On the south it fronts the Gulf of Mexico. The county boasts lots of water frontage. Our first stop was the Wallisville Lake Project, named for the town that used to be located at the terminus of the Trinity River, where it flows into Trinity Bay.

We completed our delightful road trip with a visit to the recently completed Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters and Visitors Center. The new building is a replacement for the previous one that was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Chambers County took a direct hit from that storm in 2008, by the way. Here's a view from the center's boardwalk that leads to the edge of Lake Anahuac.
