Down by the water.  We couldn't find the springs.

Beautiful day for birding!

We walked both areas of the Rio Grande Campgrounds while birding with our friend Elke. We always enjoy the views of the Rio Grande.
Too nervous to try hot springs

I took this walk to the hot springs, but was too nervous to actually get in them.  I worry about who's been there before. 

The really cool feature on this trail were the native american pictoglyphs.

The park is the largest tract of public land in Texas, with more than 1,200 square miles sprawled across West Texas along the Rio Grande. Hiking trails wander through deep canyons to spring-fed oases and to the tops of the forested Chisos Mountains. Written with assistance from Big Bend National Park staff, Hiking Big Bend National Park is the only comprehensive hiking guide to the many trials in this unique national park and will guide you to little-known places as well as the popular areas. Three trails in nearby Big Bend Ranch State Park also are featured. This guide includes safety descriptions, elevation charts, black-and-white photos, and up-to-date maps and reference information. Hiking Big Bend National Park is an invaluable resource for planning your next hiking trip in Texas's Big Bend Country.
