David Muench's Favorite Places

Big Bend National Park, Texas

David Muench enjoys the exciting blend of history and landscape that exists in Big Bend, where the Rio Grande serves as a watery border between the United States and Mexico. With more than 800,000 acres of land, the park features a rich collection of some 1,200 species of plants, including more than 60 cactus species, massive canyons and an expansive desert—all against the beautiful backdrop of the Chisos Mountain Range.
