    Photos From Big Bend

    Working over the past week {hard to believe that it will be a full 7 days since we got back last Sunday, in just a few hours} on some photos from the Big Bend National Park ride and week....as usual the quality is never as good as hoped, but will post them individually as I remember them over the next few days....and try to keep them in some sort of order as taken:

    Off we go....leaving Montezuma, Ohio, with Montezuma Nick {L} and Hoot

    The weather and traffic were pretty decent from Ohio as we turned to Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri, as night fell....even with a couple of brief rest stops in Oklahoma and North Texas, we decided to push forward, against common sense, and made it to the door step of Big Bend by mid afternoon on Sunday, stopping at the quaint little motel in the town of Terlingua, Texas....

    $82 bucks seemed fair enough to me....a few bites of Beef Jerkey, a few Lite Beers, and a couple of cigars would precede a good night's sleep before heading into Big Bend early on Monday:

    Monday Morning came, and we ate a hearty breakfast at the local gas and pit stop...then saying good bye to the Chisos Mining Motel, we headed towards Big Bend and the Rio Grande Village:

    Temperatures were already approaching 80 as we entered the park...we would have 2 warm day, followed by 3 cooler days, before the rebound just before we headed back towards home the next Saturday

    Camp Site #32 had some open views and plenty of tame wildlife. mostly birds to spoil, it was a good site in the NO Generator Zone....just some kids making noise and the night time visits of the Howling Coyotes...
