Big Bend National Park
Rio Grande Campground
After a very chilly start to the morning –where did that come from–I walked down to the wildlife viewing area and saw another fabulous grouping of animals and birds.
That’s 46 deg inside my van with the stove going.
Then I drove up to The Basin to take the famous Window Walk. There is a very narrow slot in the Chisos Mountains where the water pores-kind of a trickle at this point– over the edge and falls thousands of feet. I haven’t done the walk in a number of years so I guess that I was “mis-remembering” it as an easy walk. It was 7 miles and it took me 3 hours. Of course that included lots of photography, but still. Boy I must be getting old. Don’t answer that.
I finished up at the fancy lodge because I felt, after all that, I deserved a $20 cheeseburger and fries!
Another wonderful day, but I do hope that it is warmer tonight.
