After leaving San Antonio, we headed east to Big Bend National Park. It seemed like it took all day to get there. Texas is a huge state! And, once you think you're there, you still have almost 100 miles from the main road to get to the park entrance. Big Bend is a beautiful National Park. It covers more than 800,000 acres from an elevation of 2,000 feet on the Rio Grande River to about 8,000 feet in the Chisos Mountains. We stayed for several days at the Chisos Basin Lodge. Our guide books said to book way in advance, but we called the day before and got a room. I think that's the advantage of traveling in the off season. Our 2nd morning we did a long, scenic 3 1/2 hour hike. The weather got cooler and cloudier as the day wore on. The painting above is of "The Window". We had planned on hiking down to the canyon between the two peaks the next morning, but there was absolutely no view, severe winds, and heavy rain.
I just received a great surprise in the mail. I had passed on the Sunshine Award to Lee Brown of
"A Day Not Wasted." He sent me A Day Not Wasted painting apron. How great is that! He lives in Monument, Colorado about 20 minutes from here. Hopefully we'll meet some day. Check out his great blog!
