Big Bend National Park is located in southwest Texas and includes the entire Chisos mountain range and a large area of the Chihuahuan Desert. It alway excites us when we come to the road into the Chiso Basin, this scenic drive is what I remember everytime we come to visit.  Ths is Texas scenery and it draw vistors from all over the USA.  It has become a tourist destination as people come here to camp, hike, canoe the rio grande river, or take in the stars at night.  This area is know for its dark skies.. This area also has some of the larger mountains in Texas. This Texas landscape at big bend is pretty much a desert landscape with the Basin having a little more greenery than other areas.  Mostly it is octillo cactus and creosote growning in the area.  This desert landscape is more diverse in the Chiso Basin area just some greener in the lower areas.  Big Bend National Park is about an eight hour drive for us to get here and once in the park it is quite a distance between areas, but it is worth it to see this wonderful  mountain scenery and desert landscape located in our own state.
