Everyone has his or her favorite place to hike, ride a bike, or just drive at a leisurely speed with the windows rolled down. In 1975, my friends and I loved to travel aimlessly across the rolling farmland just north of Denton, Texas. The countryside was used for grazing as well as farming, thus the prairie lands would change with the seasons. The landscape, intersected by little creeks and their attendant greenbelts, provided The Greenbelt Trailway follows the Elm Fork branch of the Trinity River. bucolic fodder year-round for our sketchbooks and cameras. But everything changes, of course, and nothing really ever stays the same. Yet we never imagined that our roaming ground would one day be completely submerged under millions of gallons of water.
