Now THIS is what I call a real river!

I went for my first time a couple of years ago. Talk about a fun time indeed. One of my good friends has a food stand & cooks there every year so I get in for free & eat for free. Can't beat that & it certainly beats a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway any day!

Like I said in a previous post. They dredged the river. That's why it's so deep.

The Brazos:
Wow! You call that huge.

Have you seen the Trinity River downstream. The river is wide in Liberty, Tx.

Have you seen a picture of the brazos river upstream? It's very small. Like I said, the river starts in North Texas that's why it's small. The river gets bigger as it goes downstream.

Then say rivers upstream are small and like the Trinity. Don't say all of the rivers in Texas are like that.

River's get dredged all the time. Nothing new there.

As a matter of fact, the Panama Canal is being dredged & widened to allow larger ships & more cargo from the Port of Houston from Asia & Central America as we speak.

Yep.
My point is that, none of the rivers in Texas can be navigated by large ships.

It may not be a river by definition, but the Panama Canal certainly looks & acts like one with lakes & tributaries coming off of it in every direction & is of course very navigable. The only difference is there is no one end to it like a river instead it opens up on both ends to the ocean.
