Big Bend National Park
Texas
March 7th-10th, 2015

-The first day was a good one, but a long one. Before we got to the park, we helped two stranded people by giving them gas to get to the nearest gas station and used the Duramax to tow a trailer to the nearest town for a truck dangerously low on fuel. When we (finally) got to the park, we checked in and traversed Old Ore Road. Though a long road, it has many exiting twists, turns and breathtaking views. We got to the campsite just in time to set up camp before it started raining.

-The second day was one with excitement. Today, we covered Black Gap road, which is covered with mud bogs, large rocks/boulders, hugs the side of cliffs and has a 20 inch rock ledge as small obstacles for the Hummers. Everyone got through them with no problem! The rain we had the night before woke up all of the vibrant desert foliage and flowers for our enjoyment. The desert, normally devoid of color and life, was filled to the brim with amazing views and landscape. Texas is a truly beautiful place to live. Towards the end of the day, we toured and hiked through the Marsical Mine, an old abandoned mercury mine in the park. We ended the day grilling, laughing and trading stories over the comfort of good food, good company and a warm grille.

-The third day we took somewhat slow, more so for seeing the sights of the park. We covered Grapevine Springs trail and hiked part of the Lost Mine trail before our group split. One party went to relax in the Hot Springs, another toured the Castolon Historical District, saw the Rio Grande and drove the immaculate scenic drive through the Chisos Basin and surrounding areas, and the last party stayed and toured the entire Lost Mine trail. We rendezvoused back at camp at the set check in time, ate dinner together and packed up for our long journey home the next day.


-Though everyone came over prepared with fluids, spare parts and tools, none were needed. It's better to be safe than sorry!
