Big Bend Day 3

The Chisos Basin

On the way up to the basin we were stopped by a young black bear. Unfortunately it disappeared into the brush before we could get a picture.

The Window (La Ventana) 

Tiny flowers 

I found this pink cactus extraordinary.

Grapevine Hill Road

The best part of traveling with a jeep continues to be the ability to go where others cannot.



The campsite at the end of the road


Balanced Rock


Many interesting geologic features. This long ridge with a volcanic fin on top I called "The Sandworm".
