Big Bend Desert Bluebonnets Sunrise

Big Bend Desert Bluebonnets Sunrise - The morning sunrise had yet to rise over the mountains near the landmark Cerro Castellan in Big Bend National park. We had just a rainbow of color in the clouds with the Texas bluebonnets flowing down the slope to the canyon valley below broken up by the desert grasses and the many octillos in this desert landscape. The sunrise colors of pinks, yellows, oranges, in the sky plus the octillos growing along the slopes with these wonderful bluebonnets made the day. The Texas image of bluebonnets were just beginning to show as the sunlight glow began to illuminates the flowers in this early morning in Big Bend at dawn. While we waited for the sunrise show we heard a pack of coyotes howling and yeping just beneath us which actually gave us some trepidaton as they were a little too close for comfort but this is a wild area. Luckily for us they were not interested in checking us out. Big Bend National Park was in full bloom with the desert bluebonnets this year and it was lovely. This was the best year we have seen in our 10 plus years of coming here. The Big Bend bluebonnet or Chisos bluebonnet are the common name of this lupine. It is native to Texas and Chihuahua, where it can be found blooming from January through June. What surprised for us as they were all over the hill sides and along the roads in thick patches. WE love this caputured with the desert octillo growing along with the wildflowers. We were curious how the bluebonnets got so high up on the mountain sides. In any case it was a wonderful site to see in this wonderful desert landscape this spring and made us glad we came for this unique show. Today we had a great morning sunrise with this wonderful bluebonnet landscapes with the Cerrp Castllan mountain as a backdrop in Big Bend National Park which made it worth the trip.
