Heaven’s Foothills

If there’s one place in Texas that can best be described as “stunning”, it’s the view south from Grapevine Hills in Big Bend National Park. This is a spot in far west Texas I like to call “Heaven’s Foothills” and I sure hope the rest of Heaven looks this beautiful.

  1. I love that photo. Your photos, especially this time of year, make me wish I could spend at least a month every year in west Texas and another month in the Arizona desert.

  2. Oh Jeff, I am sure Heaven has a special corner that looks just like Texas where the people there are just as nice. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2012!

  3. I really like this one a lot. So far I think it is the best of the Big Bend shots. I doubt that I will ever make that trip but I haven’t given up hope.

  4. Grapevine Hills. I remember it well. It is the place where I took a bad fall, in my endeavor to photograph the balanced rock there. I was laid up for a time, and I never tried again for the photo. Yours is a great image, Jeff. I agree with your title, Heaven’s Foothills. I’ll have to remember that. 🙂
