Big Bend National Park, Texas

There is a place in West Texas where rivers carve temple-like canyons in ancient limestone. Big Bend National Park is the main attraction of the entire region. It is an 1100 square mile playground and classroom. The 800,000-acre national park has three primary habitats: river, desert, and mountains.

Here, hundreds of birds take shelter in a solitary mountain range surrounded by desert. Robust cactus bloom in the southwestern sun, and the diversity of species is the best in the country. Big Bend National Park encompasses the Rio Grande River, and Mexico is just a stone’s throw away. If you’re going, backpack through the Chisos Mountains, the only mountain range that’s completely within the borders of a National Park.

Spend the day kayaking to your heart’s content. Once night falls, you’ll witness one of the most remarkable celestial panoramas you’ll likely ever see. Big Bend’s far-flung location gives it some of the darkest skies in the States.

This next park will blow you away…..
