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.
You found wonderful landscapes of this ruggedly lovely place. So interesting to me. So different than what I know. It’s cool to think that you could look across the river to Mexico.
Thank you, Cindy. The US border runs right down the center of the Rio Grande river.
Hi there Bobster, I sure do love that scenery! Thanks for sharing Big Bend country with us (and the virtual margaritas … ha, ha)!
Hi Debster, glad you liked the scenery. It must have looked familiar to you. And those were fine margarias. 🙂
Beautiful! Looks like you had perfect weather!
Thanks, Holly. Yes, we had perfect weather. The highs were in the upper 90s, but the low desert humidity made it ideal. In fact, the nights were very cool.
Great shots as always Mr. Bob.
I miss that part of the country, maybe me and my daughter will head out that way just before summer hits.
Sure, come on out and have a look-see. 🙂
enjoyed your pictures…..can’t wait for more…
Thanks, Suzanne. Hope to have more.
makes me homesick for Arizona..I am still a desert rat at heart. Gret Photos..Thanks so much for sharing with us..
Thanks, Syl. I appreciate you reading my posts and commenting. I’m sorry I made you homesick for Arizone. I’m supposed to make you want to visit Texas. 🙂
Thanks, Bob. I’ll have it posted in the morning!
Wow! Just wow! Beautiful shots, Bob! I’d like to do a post featuring these photos with attribution and a link back to your blog if I may. Another outstanding post!
Sure, Toby, have at it. And thanks for the kind words.
