Default Big Bend Trip

This spring my wife and I finally made a trip to BBNP. It truly surpassed my expectations. My late Grandpa had a lease between Sanderson and Marathon, so it was a trip down memory lane to get back that direction. We stayed in Terlingua, and spent most of our days in the national park. I learned a lot about my camera on this trip. I’m definitely a newbie to photography, but I really love it. Here’s a few pictures from our trip.

It is truly one of the most beautiful places I've seen. Reminds me of the sparse harshness of Alaska in some sense, but in a different part of the spectrum.

Sitting on the porch at Starlight and watching the world go by is one of those things that you have to experience to understand. I don't remember how much time we were there but it was hours. Good times with good people.

Nice work!

Thanks for sharing!

For anyone planning on going to Big Bend, i would recommend going on the Lost Mines trial. Super beautiful hike and you would not expect that you were in Texas. During the heat of the summer it was 68F deep into Big Bend, very temperate rainforest like.

We weren’t able to do the lost mines trail this trip but I’ve heard described just as you said. I wish I could spend a few weeks out there. So much to see.

It’s well worth the trip. We’d been talking about going for five years, and finally decided to go. I could’ve stayed out there another week and wouldn’t have seen everything I wanted to. It’s beautiful out there.

Many familiar pictures there. I love that place. Used to guide there both on the river and in the mountains.
One time while packing down from the south rim, we passed John Denver hiking up.

Nice pictures, we took our first trip there with the family back in June and camped in the Chisos Basin. The park exceeded all of our expectations as well.

Thank y’all. I took thousands of pictures, and still going through them all. If any of y’all ever plan a trip I’d be more than happy to give you any advice I can. Just shoot me a message. We’ve only been once but we learned a lot that we plan on using for our next trip. I had a friend that went the year prior so he was a great help. Everything out there takes time to get to. It’s a lot of ground to cover, so planning is definitely a necessity if you want to make the most of your trip.

Thanks for sharing. Those are excellent pictures. My wife and I have always wanted to make the drive out there. This just may have been the motivation we needed.
