Here’s some pictures I took while visiting Big Bend last month. People keep telling me that Big Bend is beautiful. I dunno. I guess there are uglier places in America, particularly if you count a lot of the urban areas like Dallas.
Here for instance is the Rio Grande as seen from the road between Lajitas and Presidio. I somehow angled the camera so that the image looks sideways no matter what the orientation.
By the way, Presidio? Not all that it’s cracked up to be.
Here’s a picture of some mountains, taken during the ten minutes in which Texas is beautiful. And when I say “mountains” I really mean what passes for mountains in Texas: big piles of naked dirt. Considering this is Terlingua, they may actually be tailings from a mercury mine.
