    A few Big Bend pics

    Myself, Skippy, MacEntyre left Jackson, MS. About 11:00 am March the 4th, Arrived at Big Bend Tx around 3:00 am the next day! Drove non stop for 16 hrs! It was all worth it!! Slept in parking lot of the ranger station, when we woke up the about 6:00 am the light was just starting to show the scenery we had missed on the way in. Absolutely Amazing!!! The southwest is really a different world. I'm gonna let Mac do the Official Trip Report, just gonna give you guys a Few Pics. Mac and Skippy should be back Saturday or Sunday. I know they both Have alot of pics and alot of Video. I'm ready for the next Big Bend Trip

    I'm glad y'all enjoyed it and it was worth the drive. It seems that people either love it or hate it. I am pretty partial of Big Bend as well as other desert settings. I have a ton of questions but will wait until everyone is back. BTW, the photos are great, especially the 1st one.

    several countries, actually- there are more eco-zones in TX than other states- except maybe California...they go farther north than we do, and have the bigbig mountains...KM (not born Texan but got here as soon as I could..)
