BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, TEXAS
We had an awesome time exploring Big Bend National Park in South Texas. It was a bit of a detour on our trip, but we decided that seeing it in the winter was the best time, and not during this coming summer as originally planned. We’re so glad that we visited, and had an absolutely gorgeous day, driving from one end of the park to the other, taking in all the different areas of the mountains and basin. The highlight of our day was probably our hike through Santa Elena Canyon, which took us up along the Rio Grande River our first time), right on the edge of the Mexico border.
