We survived our first camping trip together! Including the worst unpaved road, a giant tarantula, and a skunk trying to steal our dinner. We learned you shouldn’t pack lunch because you forget half of it and I shouldn’t cook dinner because the food gets cold πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I can’t wait for our first backpacking camping trip! Havasupai 2019 here we come πŸ•β›° #bigbend #campingadventures #hiking #roadtrip
Frozen fog today on Chisos Mountain. Not exactly the weather we hoped for, but unbelievably beautiful just the same. #bbnp #bigbend #rvliving #rvlife #fulltimerv #chasingthesun

My @bigbendnps experience in a nutshell. πŸŒ„πŸ₯œ βž– My long-haired brutha @forrestdew and I set out to conquer a 15 mile hike (South Rim & Emory Peak) and 9 hours later, we reached the finish line. I’m sore in places I’ve never been before. πŸ˜‚ βž– The soul-filling views made it more than worth it, though. Always nice to go do something for the sake of your humanity. The reward system that takes place in our minds after literally climbing a mountain is unmatched. Such a wonderful life. β™₯️ βž– #bigbend #bigbendnp #bigbendnationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #natureporn #travelnow #travelinspo #traveltime
A rare Arctic front and drizzle stalled work on our desert compound today, so Plan B was a quick jaunt to the hauntingly beautiful Chisos Mountains. They were formed 38 million to 17 million years ago by volcanic activity similar to Mt. St. Helens. In the distance is the V-shapedβ€œWindow,” where eroded sediment from the Chisos Basin makes its way into the Chihuahuan Desert. Squint hard and you might just see our compound about 30 miles through the Window. #chisos #bigbend #texas #wanderlust #travelgram #naturephotography #terlingua #travelogue #travelphotography #nomads #neverstopexploring

When visiting Arizona. Look around, not always will you have to photograph the same spot and same view everyone does. Be wild! stay wild! #travel #travelphotography #wanderer #bestphotos #landscape #bigbend #desert #prettysky #leica #leicasociety #leicaphotography
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year for chasing redfish in skinny water. Fish are happy, plentiful, and willing to crush a @evergreen__usa . This one was pulled from a school of about 30 fish. πŸ”«πŸŸπŸ›’

Pete and his marauding band of cattle rustlers knew the lawmen were close, but they didn’t know how close. ___________________________________________ Yellow-headed blackbirds tend to travel and nest in mixed flocks of other blackbirds. During nesting season they displace the smaller and less dominant Red-winged blackbird, taking the best nesting spots. Mature males defend a small territory with up to eight females. Younger males end up without any mates and become β€œfloaters,” with no territory of their own. ___________________________________________ Yellow-headed Blackbirds | Fossil Discovery Exhibit, Big Bend National Park, TX | 05/06/2018 . . . #your_best_birds Β #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adoredd #thebirdingsquad #birdsandblooms #birds_illife #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #ip_birds #total_birds #audubon #birdwatching #birdsoftexas #birdingbigbend #bigbend #tornilloflat #fossildiscoveryexhibit #bigbendnationalpark #findyourpark #tmwanders #hikingtexas #blackbird #yellowheadedblackbird

Lonn Taylor photographed at home in Ft Davis, Texas for EP 20 of @image.culture , out today! Lonn is a curator and historian whose books and essays on Texas lore on history have long fascinated me. His most recent book β€œMarfa For the Perplexed” is my first recommendation to anyone wanting to visit Marfa, or to bona-fide Marfans who want to see their town in a whole new light. Such a pleasure to talk to Lonn that afternoon looking out at Sleeping Lion Mountain. Hear our conversation on @applepodcasts , link in bio (or just search for Image Culture in the app :) Thanks to @chinatifoundation @marfapublicradio @marfabookco β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”#LonnTaylor #imageculture #imageculturepodcast #marfa #marfatexas #history #farwesttexas #texashistory #bigbendnationalpark #bigbend #ftdavis #texas #interview #portraiture #environmentalportrait #landscape #desertlandscape #landscapephotography #interiorphotography #bigbendsentinel #marfapublicradio #artistinterview #studiovisit #donaldjudd #juddfoundation #minimalart #texasfurniture #newmexico #santefe @smithsonian @smithsonianmagazine @smithsoniannmai @smithsonianfolkways #smithsonian

Just after we’d arrived in Big Bend, set up our tent, and checked out all the cool cacti nearby, a storm came in with circling clouds and desert rain fell. It stopped quite quickly, and then the sunset looked like this. _______ #travel #bigbendnationalpark #bigbend #texas #desert #sunset #landscapephotography #usnationalparks #igtravel #lonelyplanet #travelblogger #wentlooking
On the banks of the Rio Grande. #bigbend #texas #mexico
This is Texas. That’s Mexico there. The big river. Big mountains. #welcomehome #terlingua #robertkuhnmusic #bigbend
I recently contributed a few pictures about people placing coins or stones on military tombstones to acknowledge the people buried there. As this grave in the Chihuahua Desert shows, that’s not only a military custom. . . . #BigBend #bigbendnationalpark #NPS #Texas #shotoniphone
De eerste dag in #BigBendNationalPark heeft Corrina goed besteed. Ze heeft de #santaelenacanyontrail Trail gelopen met als beloning een spectaculair uitzicht op de #SantaElenaCanyon . De rechterkant van de canyon is Amerika, de linkerkant is #Mexico en de #RioGrande #rivier is de grens. De β€œWindow” heeft ze ook meegepakt en ze moest ook nog remmen voor een overstekende #tarantula ! Een enerverende dag in West #Texas ! #goamerika #weknowthestates
Clouds and cold fronts! We've got them both right now at Big Bend National Park. Today's forecast for the Chisos Basin is calling for rain, with a high of 38Β°. While the low, clinging clouds are beautiful, make sure you are prepared for the current conditions if you head out for a hike. And, don't forget your camera! #bigbend #clouds #coldfront

Hey Travelers, just a heads up that if you are planning a trip to Big Bend National Park and want to hike the popular Lost Mine Trail, you’ll have to make a change of plans as this trail is currently closed due to increased bear activity.

Trying to figure out my next adventure..
No big deal, just having lunch in Mexico before heading into the Santa Elena Canyon... where the rapids had us for lunch. #bigbend #vaqueros #watersteed #throwmearope #youaintnocowboy #mykayakneedsamotor #bigbendwindow

A little deer bidding us farewell. Good bye Big Bend! πŸ¦ŒπŸ’•
View from the hot spring. The left bank is the USA and the right bank is Mexico. #RenakerAdventure2017
A road runner #RenakerAdventure2017
The view from the Window. The rocks were very slippery and it was a long drop down, so this was the best picture I could get. #RenakerAdventure2017
Notice the little things, like pretty green flowers. #RenakerAdventure2017
This unassuming, natural hot spring was so relaxing! We all soaked our feet after our long hike, even Michael. Right behind the hot spring is the Rio Grande and the opposite bank is Mexico. #RenakerAdventure2017
