I thought that for this part I would just show you a bunch of photos from the trip. No bird photos, but some “touristy” images.
We were staying at The Lajitas House, a bed and breakfast type of house that we rented for our stay. It is located on a bluff overlooking the Rio Grande River. This first picture is looking upriver from our patio. Mexico is on the left, of course.
The second image is looking across the river towards a little Mexican village.
Number three is looking north from our patio.
Our patio, where we sat enjoying the sunsets, sipping margaritas, and just relaxing.
Image number five – it doesn’t get any better than this. 🙂
This view is from high in the southern part of the Chisos Mountains. The cleft in the distant cliffs is Santa Elena Canyon, about 30 miles away.
Next photograph is of a line shack on Homer Wilson’s Blue Creek Ranch. Behind it is Sentinel Peak.
This tunnel is on the highway that leads to Boquillas Canyon and Rio Grande RV campsite on the east side of Big Bend National Park.
About twelve miles north of Lajitas on highway 170 is the ghost town of Terlingua. Someone had made this junk sculpture and mounted it on a post. A whimsical replication of a wasp, I would say. 🙂
How about a beautiful sunset shot from our patio. As I said before, it doesn’t get any better than this.
I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Click on any image for an enlargement.
