In far west Texas, it can lead to some great photo opportunities!!
I was in Ft. Davis earlier this month teaching a few classes at the State Park there and had sunset hour to myself. I figured I’d head down to Pinto Cayon, south of Marfa and chase the light. Well…. I never made it into Pinto Canyon due to this behemoth…. but got some good shots nonetheless!
Has some wonderful views, does it not??? Fantastic views in west Texas overlooking Ft. Davis.
Worth the drive. :)
I’m sure it was only a coincidence that I saw this fellow only moments after a road runner crossed the road at Big Bend!!
I’ve got to say that the last few times I’ve been out to Big Bend National Park the views were as awesome as usual but there seemed to be a lot of people there too!! (By Big Bend standards, anyway)
If you feel the same way, head a little further west of visit Big Bend Ranch State Park and you’ll pretty much have the place all to yourself!
