The Mesa de Anguila hike has some scenic views that are worth the punishment of the trail. Not may people know about this entrance to Big Bend National Park located in Lajitas. #visitbigbend

We rumbled onto Park Route 12 and followed the winding asphalt through undulating dunes of sand, rock, and desert scrub. The road generally followed the rolling terrain except for a small section where a short, concrete bridge lifted the road over a wide and currently dry riverbed. Long, interlacing curves of eroded sand across the bed hinted at the important role the bridge must play in the rainier months. ⠀ ⠀ The road continued until it passed through a small tunnel cut into the side of a billowing chunk of limestone known as Ernst Ridge. It is my understanding that the road once traveled around the ridge, but the park later bypassed the dangerous stretch of road (known as "Dead Man's Curve") to make travel to Rio Grande Village area safer.⠀ ⠀ See more at the Plein Air Photo Blog: http://www.shaunctarpley.com⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #bigbend #bigbendnp #bigbendnps #hik#hikebigbend #bigbendnationalpark #nature #photography #outdoorphotography #thegreatoutdoors #earthoutdoors #welivetoexplore #inspiretexasnow #thenationalparkpass #discoverearth #wonderful_places #destinationearth #earthofficial #texas #texastodo #texasparks #truetexas #livetoexplore #igtexas #neverstopexploring #naturalwonder #amazingearth #hikevibes #earthescope #hike #hiker

So I find this stuff pretty neat. Along the popular Hot Springs trail in Big Bend National Park you can find pictographs on the walls high above. Its one of two sites in the park that is considered openly published to the public for viewing. According to everything I have scoured online and read on waysides, not a whole lot is known about where these pictographs originate from and the park as a whole hasn't seen a lot of archeological survey. #parkranger #lifeofaparkranger #experienceyouramerica #itsallyours #rei1440project #optoutside #findyourpark #everykidinapark #publicland #publiclandowner #protectingyourpublicland #leavenotrace #backcountry #nationalpark #nps #nationalparkservice #bigbend #texas #bigbendnps #overland #overlandlife #pictographs #archeology #anthropology #arpa #landmanagement #artifact
