As I mentioned in Big Bend NP Part 1, this is a very large park. One of the handouts which were given
to us stated the following:|
"Big Bend National Park shares the border with Mexico for 118 miles. This is a remote region. Visitors should be aware that drug smuggling routes pass through the park."
This part of Texas also seems to be the home to the Roadrunner. We saw our first one in Death Valley when it crossed in front of us as we were leaving the first campground. I did not have time to get the camera out. While driving around Big Bend NP we did see many roadrunners. They are not blue like the Time Warner Roadrunner!
In this part I have a collection of unique pictures.
