The path you choose to explore in a place as large as Big Bend National Park is a very personal choice. Many folks drive through the park and rarely leave the comfort of their vehicle to venture forth and explore the deep desert regions of the park. Some brave souls hike countless miles throughout the back country trails in search of solitude and tranquility with only a backpack and bed roll for their comfort. Luckily, Big Bend National Park has something special to offer to almost everyone that visits. And like me, many just can’t get enough of this incredible jewel hidden in the reaches of far West Texas.
