Big Bend National Park: Inspiration on Instagram

“Big Bend National park is preserved, protected,
and almost as wild as the day it was made.

It’s the essence of Texas as we like to think of it
— a gift to Texas and a gift to the nation
.”

~ a dear quote I love from Big Bend National Park Impressions (Farcountry Press).

    Another popular capture is the tunnel at BBNP. It is the very first highway tunnel to be built in Texas. How about this view taken above the tunnel. . .

Here’s an awesome reason to climb . . .

Always be prepared for the unexpected in the desert.

You have to end the day with a sunset. And this one made me look twice . . .

    Gorgeous! We lived in Texas for a couple years and I really wanted to go here, but we were never able to make it. 🙁

      Its understandable. Big Bend is a BIG trip to make. Not a convenient stop by any means. You fly and then drive for hours and hours. I live here and it takes me hours to get anywhere. Its a beautiful number of hours, but everything takes a nice long day or two. We’re still here if you ever decide to fly back and drive around for a week or so. 😉

Someone told me the other day, "The world has gone crazy and there's no escaping it . . . " Maybe its the mama-optimism in me, but I just raised my eyebrows and my heart ached a little with pity. Have they driven down our quiet, sweet desert roads . . .
Here's an article & image from WSJ about Big Bend and in particular Marfa, "cinematic landscapes that stretch unbroken to the horizon; cowboys presiding over art galleries; and sunsets that, at the smog-free altitude of nearly 5,000 feet, were the prettiest I’d ever seen. . . "
