Do you know the “BIG BEND COUNTRY” of Texas?
The area spans nearly the whole of “west Texas.” As far west as El Paso on the westernmost tip; as far north as Midland; and encompass as far southeast as even Del Rio. An area of extremes it is also called the “Trans-Pecos,” because it starts east of the Pecos River.
Here’s a map for a general idea of the cities in this area:

As you can see, Big Bend Country includes more than the cities that I have highlighted in my initial image:

::: Marfa                 ::: Fort Davis              ::: Alpine

::: Marathon          ::: Terlingua               ::: Lajitas                ::: Presidio

I am concentrating on these cities, because I am connected personally. They are the destinations that I often go to for supplies and/or entertainment. Of course I will leave the option open to expand my scope in the exciting days ahead. . .

It can be a lovely day, every day here in the Big Bend desert region of Texas.
I moved here in 2008 and my perspective on life has been changed for the better ever since. This blog is where I post all the events, stories, and views that I find to be interesting in my research of the Big Bend desert. My research began when my little ones were big enough to run about and question me about every little thing they could grab, step on, or sniff! I also developed quite a large portfolio of Big Bend, so I started to play around with the graphics, which lead to more research. The learning never ends. . .

I also include news and events that pertain to other desert regions, because I have grown to admire and appreciate desert lifestyles, landscapes, flora and fauna. Here in Big Bend, the communities are generous, inspiring, and involved. I hope to stimulate, enliven, or merely enhance your interest for this area, maybe for the desert in general? Looking forward to good discussions and gaining insights by sharing some of my own personal reflections. Tomorrow is aglow with the possibilities!

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. . . "
