…I love Texas. Or at least West Texas. To be more specific, Brewster County, the home of Big Bend and the ghost town of Terlingua.
Yesterday we canoed down the Rio Grande on a trip run by the Far Flung Outdoor Center. It was a slow, leisurely paddle through canyons and beautiful desert scenery. The trip was broken up by a long lunch, a two mile hike through the desert, and a soak in the hot springs on the river. It was a serene excursion except for the traffic jam when three canoes got hung up in the same shallow stretch of the river. One overturned. The occupants walked a few feet to shore while the guides emptied the water out of the canoe and we continued on our way. It was that kind of trip.
I’ll write more later when I have a reliable internet signal (you’ve heard that before. What can I say; Big Bend is very remote). Until then, enjoy the photos.
