Big Bend National Park 🏞️πŸ•️



Splendid Isolation, the Big Bend...

There is a place in Far West Texas where night skies are dark as coal and rivers carve
temple-like canyons in ancient limestone. Here, at the end of the road, hundreds of
bird species take refuge in a solitary mountain range surrounded by weather-beaten desert.
Tenacious cactus bloom in sublime southwestern sun, and diversity of species is the best
in the country. This magical place is Big Bend.

Big Bend National Park is in southwest Texas and includes the entire Chisos mountain range and a large swath of the Chihuahuan Desert. The Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive leads to the ruins of Sam Nail Ranch, now home to desert wildlife. The Santa Elena Canyon, carved by the Rio Grande, features steep limestone cliffs. Langford Hot Springs, near the Mexican border, has pictographs and the foundations of an old bathhouse.
