Big Sky Texas

Big Bend National Park

We spent the day at Big Bend National Park in West Texas. We got a late start waiting for the winter weather to clear and it took the rest of the day to do mostly a driving tour. The park is huge. We have to come back when we have time to hike and explore. Definitely plan on at least three days.

Big Bend has three distinct regions: mountains, desert and river.
Rio Grande at Saint Elena Canyon
Desert and Mountains
Cerro Castellan: volcanic lava flows and ash deposits with layers of gravel and clay from periods of erosion between eruptions.
Rio Grande and Mexico
