A Final Drive in Big Bend

Another good day for a jeep.

The River Road from Rio Grande Village to Solis

An old homesite by what is still a spring.

One of the rocks exposed sports a fossilized shell.


A place so remote that jackrabbits don't know to be afraid of people and run. 

Solis Primitive Camp

Several horses were grazing. You can just see them through the bush. They were not going to let people get close enough to catch them. There was pasture with fencing across the river so I'm pretty sure these are "illegal alien" horses.

 We saw these flowering bushes at just one spot on the river road.

Glenn Spring Road

Old fence and homesite and Glenn Spring

The Chisos

The road ends at the base of Nugent Mountain
