Here’s some shots, mostly landscapes, of a July visit to Big Bend’s Basin area. Seems like going to the desert in July is a bad idea, but The Basin was really cool still. We ventured to the valley once to see the Rio Grande and realized quickly that we had made a good decision by camping in the higher elevations.
Arriving in Big Bend: view of the desert floor.
A Century Plant from The Window Trail.
Agave plant, the roots of which are used to make Tequila.
The view from the end of The Window Trail, looking out of The Basin.
The many varieties of cactus, displayed on a hillside
Zack and his friend, Mark, displaying bugs for me at Big Bend National Park.
Here’s a couple of snap shots I took of Juliana, daughter of my friends Josh and MP. Ever since, I have thought of Juliana as the Gerber Baby. I still do, nevermind that she’s 3 years old now.
