Big Bend Canyon with Sierra del Carmen Vertical

Big Bend Canyon with Sierra del Carmen Vertical - After climbing up almost a thousand feet vertical to get to this location I managed to get this shot as the sun was starting to set and still had light on the Sierra del Carmen mountains in the background. This overlook is just off the Hot Springs Canyon trail in Big Bend National Park. This was a difficult hike to say the least it is a rugged place that can be unforgiving at times, yet it can be a beautiful place especially at sunset. With the Sierra del Carmen in the distance, and the Rio Grande river below which continues it flows eastward, eventually spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. Along this overlook I found a nice prickly pear cactus and a sage bush that over looked the Rio Grande river with the Sierra del Carmen mountains in the distant. The sun was creating some nice colors with just enough light over the rio grande river to create this beautiful landscape. The Sierra del Carmen mountains border the Big Bend National park on one side and they can bee seen from quite a distance inside the park yet they are actuall in Coahuila, Mexico. Sierra del Carmen is a rugged, 40-mile-long section in the southern end of the park. Much of it is a so-called "sky island," ridges and peaks rising more than 5,000 feet from the floor of the Chihuahuan Desert is quite an impresses site. Big Bend has endless hiking opportunities you pretty pick your destination. Also Big Bend is also an International Dark Sky Park. Big Bend National Park has the darkest measured skies in the lower 48 states, and star gazing here is obviously superb. Big Bend National Park is America's fifteenth largest national park, boasting 801,163 acres of protected land, making it the largest protected portion of the Chihuahuan desert in the United States. Big Bend National Park is in southwest Texas and includes the entire Chisos mountain range and a large swath of the Chihuahuan Desert.
