Into the Desert

It's road trip time.
Tomorrow I embark on a 500 mile journey towards Big Bend National Park, in southwest Texas, into the Chihuahuan Desert -- the largest in North America.

It will be my first excursion into such a place, though for unknown reasons, deserts have always fascinated me. Perhaps, on this trip, I'll find out why.


In any case, hasta luego! See y'all on the flip side!

Be sure to stop by Marfa TX while your down there. It has a get little art colony, and an art museum.

Awesome! I visited Tucson, AZ a year ago and was amazed at the desert life. Bring plenty of lotion! :)

I like desserts a lot as well. Wait, desert? Oh, well those are pretty good too I guess.

(I like them because life clings to them even though they are so dry and hot)

Hope your having a blast, although why someone would want to go where it's that hot is beyond me. I look forward to the stories upon your return!

I ran out of time, and so didn't get to Marfa, Camplin. So there's still a frontier left for the next trip.

I did and I did, Amanda. Updates to follow developing.

For a place everyone thinks is desolate, Random M, it is so alive.

The heat wasn't too bad there, Trevor. It was a nice escape from the Dallas humidity.

Oddly and fortunately, it was one of the coolest summers on record, Aza.
