040 - Big Bend National Park, Texas
(Print with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on Big Bend National Park, Texas
 
One of the least known and most remote of our national parks, Big Bend is a nature photographer's delight. Black bears, mountain lions, deer, javalina, and ring-tail cats roam the Chisos Mountains. More types of cactus grow here than most other desert locations. Spring brings out the cactus blossoms and wildflowers. Hike to the overlook from the South Rim of the Chisos to photograph blooming agaves framing the distant Sierra Quemada Mountains. Trails lead to scenic canyons, hot springs, and the edge of the Rio Grande. Details are provided on reserving the best of the secluded stone cabins in the oak forest in the Chisos Mountains for a week-long stay. Go in the early spring when the wildflowers are in bloom and avoid the heat of summer.
