Description: Big Bend National park is located in West Texas in Brewster County along the Rio Grande River. This an an 800,000 acre & one could spend years exploring the canyons and varied landscapes of this desert setting. Hot in summer and filled with life forms that seem intent on poking, puncturing and and generally maiming the passing hiker, this is what many consider the premier park for photography in Texas.
