big bend national park, texas 2


Big Bend Nat'l ParkIn the midst of the Chihuahuan Desert, Big Bend is so large it contains its own mountain range, the Chisos.  Tucked in the lower-S of the Rio Grande, it is three-sided by Mexico for 118 miles, with the US only to the north, which may explain why is it the least-visited large park in the continental US – it is not on the way from any place to another.  Here I spend an afternoon down the long Santa Elena Canyon road, which after 35 miles south dead-ends at the border.  The desert southwest colors and landscapes enrich the soul.  [please hover over images for captions]
