Big Bend State park

We left Marathon around 9.30 it was cloudy and rainy.Great views on the way over to big bend. On the way over I saw the biggest rack on a deer I had ever seen before and about 2 miles down the road was a bunch of hunters lucky guy.

we had a welcoming comity when we arrived. 

And this wood pecker came to say hello.

once we were set up we went for a hike on one of the many trails.

 The trail went along the Rio Grand 

 This is what the view was like from our camp site.

The trail headed up over the mountain great vegetation.

There she is following along.

Sure wish the sun was shining.

Lots to look at another couple said they saw a fox so I was checking every hole to see if it was a den.

That's the RV park. State parks are expensive here 35 a night. 

Great views from the top of the mountain.

Looking down at the river.

 In the opposite direction

After we were finished the walk we went for a drive and at this lookout we could see the Mexicans across the river.

The Mexicans had brought these crafts over and sat them on this rock and asked for 6 dollars each and you just left the money in the can. Brenda bought a walking stick.

The sun came out for a few minutes just to show us what it looked like here.


  1. What a lovely area there, enjoy your hikes.
    I am pretty sure your woodpecker is a roadrunner.
    Enjoy the journey.

  2. Big Bend is our list too, it looks beautiful.

    1. It is a great spot I think you 2 will love it lots of hiking trails.You can get a site with no hook ups for 14 dollars or do what this other guy that is here did he parked right out side the store and got free wifi and never paid a penny.
