Photographer's Note

The Chihuahuan Desert sun setting through "The Window" in Big Bend National Park, Texas. We retreated into the Chisos Mountains after a sun-soaked day along the Rio Grande.

Hanging out of the car window, I captured this photo as we descended into the Chisos Basin.
A most welcoming scene for a few "first-timer" college friends of mine.

At an elevation of approx. 5,400 feet, the Basin provides a break from the desert heat, and is the most popular campground in the Park. Never a dull moment in this quiet desert sanctuary of West Texas.
