Description: 

A bayou is a swamp-like body of water, sluggish or stagnant, usually adjacent to a river. Hog Bayou "runs into the river" fifteen miles south of the story's first bayou (301). It has "a mess of down trees and logs and such" as well as water in it (301), and at one point "narrows down to about twelve or fifteen feet across" - which is where Mister Ernest tries to jump his horse across (302).
