We went on a rainy day. There isn't really much here if the weather isn't nice enough to walk the trails or you aren't in a school group. Finding the entrance is pretty tricky if you don't have a GPS since it's hidden in a...More

I think that the old saying 'Mad dogs and Englishman go out in the midday sun' is correct in my case. Mid August and I cycled the 30 minutes from my hotel to the Edith. L. Moore sanctuary and found myself pretty much alone. Not...More

Edith Moore Nature Center is about 16 miles from MD Anderson Cancer Center, or about a half hour drive in Houston traffic. I don't know of any public transportation to get there.
