Hello from Big Bend - big bend hello towns” width=

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!

Where did the summer go? Missing the bluebonnets. I almost forgot to share these custom bookmarks I made for a special event. I put together a custom back design and the special holder for their unique occasion. I was so relieved at how well received they were! Happy-happy-joy-joy.

Warning - will take your breathe away . . .Had the honor of floating the Rio Grande River with Teddy Roosevelt IV, Senator Udall, and a group from American Rivers to make a film about the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. Really proud of this short film and honored to help American Rivers help keep water flowing in our watersheds. Massive thanks to everyone who made this possible and especially the great team who knocked out the filming, editing, post, and composition: Austin Alvarado John Aldrich Hillary Pierce Nina Vizcarrondo Alex Winker Will Springstead Adrian Quesada Korey Kaczmarek Katy Baldock Amy Souers Kober Sinjin Eberle ...
