Today was the second day at Big Bend. We spent most of the day in the Chisos Basin where the park lodge is located. The four of us started the hike all the way to the “window” and two of us finished it, which enabled me to not only experience a hike full of wonder but also to get over 20000 on my Fitbit for the day. I also have a sunburn now. For this post I will just add photos with little comment. Later I will add more details about this astonishing place.
Although I took some of these photos, I did not take anything on the hike so thanks to a friend you are seeing some of these. This is bear and mountain lion country so there are signs telling you what to do if you see one, hardly likely with so many people around. However, all the campsites have metal containers in which to lock food from bears.
