This is from our first two days visiting Big Bend National Park. The views here are amazing. Sometimes it is 360 degrees of incredible view.
The first day in we decided to take a long drive. We entered on the north end and took the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive to Saint Elana Canyon on the south west end. The drive was about 77 miles.

There are also three different ecosystems from desert to mountains and the river.
Enough of that I'll let Wendy's pics do the rest of the talking.
|Part of Chisos Mountains Basin drive|
We got a great hike in today to an area called The Windows. It was just Gorgous ( I told Wendy that and I know that's not how you spell it.)
|Didn't see any mt. lions or rattle snakes|
Another couple we ran into said they met them at the trail head and gave them a ride to their vehicle.
