There’s a shallow canyon that cuts across the northeast corner of Lubbock; when I was a kid, it was the place where you dumped off your junked car when it didn’t run anymore, or your old mattress, or a bag of household garbage. It was sad that the only real topography in the city was just a long ad hoc landfill. Then in the middle of the 1970s, the Canyon Lakes project began construction, and the junk was hauled away. A series of low dams were built, causing a string of small lakes through the canyon.
It’s a nice place, now, with trails and picnic tables and lakes. And, along the side of the last dam in the chain, there’s a bit of interesting graffiti.
