Spring comes early in Texas and what a gift it is! No matter where you go there are fields and roadsides alive with color. Where there are animals, they seem to have no problem lounging in the beauty surrounding them.
A favorite place for me in spring is Big Bend National Park in far west Texas. It’s hard to get to which makes it the least visited of our national parks but so worth the effort.
The park’s topography is amazing. It is desert and mountains.
It is the Rio Grand, in places so narrow and shallow one can walk across it.
Wildflowers abound, but there are other varieties of blooming things, the names of which I have no idea, that add to the uniqueness of Big Bend.
Trees burst with color
and every blooming thing has a different texture.
What really fascinates me are the cacti, each specie with its own flower.
I find it difficult to hurry through the park as each time my eye sees something different that is a photo op. I do have to be careful not to get too close to prickly needles that can cause a lot of discomfort.
Seen against the blue Texas sky, nature’s beauty is a painting crafted by God.
At the end of a day’s exploring, the Big Bend sunsets leave me awestruck.
Should you be on the lookout for a new adventure, don’t overlook Big Bend as it is filled with wonder, especially in spring.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
