Big Bend National Park
Rio Grande Camp
Here is a pretty cool photo I shot between Alpine and Marathon Texas on the way to Big Bend.
I am so happy to be in one place for a while. Life is just mellow here. Although it froze last night, this afternoon turned out to be shorts weather. I am so glad that I didn’t wholly listen to the forecast and packed some warm weather cloths.
This morning I got up early, read and then walked over to the wildlife viewing area. I had the place to myself except for this preening heron.
The setting moon put on quite a show too.
Then I drove over to Boquillas Canyon where I also, once again, even though it’s Saturday, had the place to myself until about 10:30 when a few birders and photographers hiked in. Tourists started arriving shortly after that.
I then drove over to the Hot Springs, made lunch and then took another photo hike. Only by this time it was starting to get hot and after dragging on for a while I came back to the shade of my campsite.
Pretty good day and it’s only 5 pm!
