An unnatural canyon in Northeast Texas

Most Northeast Texas rivers meander through lush, dense vegetation. The North Sulphur is different.

After the river was channeled in the late 1920s, erosion began to widen and deepen the channel of the North Sulphur River. After decades, the cumulative effect is dramatic. The broad, dry riverbed looks more like something one would see in the Southwest instead of the South Central United States.
