Thanks, Tim Monzingo, for your enjoyable article about a kayak trip down the “wild, rugged” Attoyac River with its “unruly kind of beauty.” I’m glad you survived your alligator encounter!

Sadly, this magical stretch of natural wildlife and vegetation may soon be drastically reduced. During the next three years, over 2 billion gallons of water will be diverted from the Attoyac River for mining purposes in Nacogdoches County.
