DAY 16/30 Exactly 14 days (2 weeks) until we part ways with our sweet Austin town of 20 years. Today we began to geek 🤓 out & loosely plan our first 2 months. WORD: FUTURIZING ~ May we walk in the now while being planful, without obsessing. May we remain unattached to the outcome. May we expect nothing & appreciate everything.
I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams... Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
🇺🇸Big Bend is a very large park. As a result distances can be deceiving. To really appreciated the grandeur of the mountains try hiking up closer/ 🇷🇺 Парк Big Bend очень большой. Из-за этого размеры могут быть обманчивы. Чтобы оценить масштабы, надо пройти несколько километров поближе к горам. • • • • • • #travelingthroughtheworld #beautifuldestinations #yourshotphotographer #travelphotography #travelgram #landscape #hikingtheworld #natgeoru #landscape_captures #peoplewhohike #hiking_in_space #venturebeyond #womenwhohike #америка #сша #travelawesome #nationalpark #hike #travel #optoutside #hikerlist #alltrails #bigbendnationalpark #texas #visittexas #RioGrandeNPS #HikeBigBend #BigBendNPS #bigbend

This was our first night in Big Bend, what an amazing way to start off an adventure! @bigbendnps #hikingadventures #hikingtexas #nationalparks #nationalpark #bigbend #wanderlust
The beauty of this place would be greatly impacted by a wall. #resist #fucktrump #nowall #nofences #bigbend #nationalpark
This view never gets old. John Muir was called by the mountains. I too am called by the mountains, with a particular affinity for the desert variety... #desertlove #bigbend #westtexas #bigbendnationalpark #chisosbasin #chisosmountains #winter #desert #outdoors #hiking #oboz #texas #texasoutdoors

I'm on my fourth flight change for the day. Previous three attempts were cancelled. Amidst all this confusion it's easy to think back to simpler moments just a few days ago when the sun and our tired legs would determine our schedules. Shout out to chef @chronickev cooking up this fuego meal with a view few establishments could rival ___ #bigbendnationalpark #bigbend #texas #landscapelover #landscape #igsouthwest #takeahike #theoutbound #wanderlust #travel #optoutside #stayandwander #publicland #getoutstayout #neature #keepitwild #rei1440project #exploremore #getoutstayout #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #travelstoke #thegreatoutdoors #igtexas #nationalparkgeek #backpacking #emorypeak #dinnerwithaview #doitforthegram #chasesunsets

That one time we made up our own trail and ended up on top of a mountain for a should have been spring trail. And just a little bit before @amanda41323 ‘s sweet hiney met a not so sweet cactus. We called it #AndrewHiking @_paranoid.android_ #bigbend #westtexas #besttimeofyear #fourbestiesfortheresties
The Window trail ends at the top of a waterfall that only runs during extreme flash flooding. Water polished granite lines the path, making it easy to slip over the edge to the Chihuahuan desert 220ft below. Expansive views of the desert greet you. #womenwhohike
Lost Mines Trail #bigbend #vscocam
This ones called how many kyles does it take to change a light bulb? I originally lit my prop tent from the inside, but the batteries died just before we shot the “Painting Tuff Canyon” project. Scariest hike of my life, off trail, crossing a large canyon in the dark. And no solo desert mountain hike at midnight story would be complete without the rustling sounds of a large animal as you left the cliff side. Im going to assume it was a javalena, because they’re everywhere, but my imagination assumed different. I got out of there quick. . . . . . . . . . #timelapse #timelapsevideo #timelapseart #timelapsetuesday #timelapsestars #BBNP #bigbend #bigbendnationalpark #nps #tuffcanyon #ChihuahuanDesert #lightpaintingphotography #photography #longexposure #canyon #canon #longexposurephotography #landscape #nightphotography #tent #startrails #stars #desert #cliff #mountains #riverbed #light #electric #starrynight #canonphotography .

There was an incredible amount of fog when we arrived at Big Bend, so much that we could hardly see the mountains behind us. Luckily the sun came out, lifting the fog, and we had a beautiful day for exploring. #wander #wanderlust #findyourpark #nps #nationalpark #bigbend #texas #fog #foggy #travel #adventure #explore #roadtrip #vacation #love #spouse
Spent a lot of my time at Big Bend holding up obscenely large rocks 🤔🤔😞🤠 #bigbend #bigbendnationalpark
One week ago, we got up with the sunrise and had Santa Elena Canyon all to ourselves! The age of the earth and the power of water is undeniable at this spot. Over millions of years, the Rio Grande has snaked its way through layers of rock, forming the seven-mile canyon. Mexico (and grazing goats) on the left, U.S. on the right. An absolutely incredible sight and a must-see for anyone wanting to feel really, really tiny. #santaelenacanyon
So you wanna understand Texas weather, huh? This photo is a great analogy. Where this car is currently on the road, it’s 54 degrees. But you see that blanket of fog behind it? In there, it’s 27 degrees. A few minutes after I drove into it, I had a sheet of ice on my windshield. Crazy, right? Well welcome to Texas 🤠 • • • #igtexas #terlingua #elpaso #VisitTexas #TexasToDo #shareyourtexas #livetexan #texasliving #lonestarstate #dallas #texaspride #texaslove #texasproud #texassky #onlyintexas #marfa #austin #naturaltexas #bigbend #featurepalette #atx #texas #austintx #texasyall #texasforever #texaslife #houstontx #texasshouts #texasroads #texas_ig

I just loved this little Yucca plant amongst all the rocks. This is on the hike to Balanced rock #desertplant #hikingfun #getoutside #newfinds
With its shutter and louvers open to the cold mountain air, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope aims its giant mirror array into the night sky. . #davismountains #bigbend #westtexas
Hiking Marufo Vega & Boquillas Canyon with our new van buddy @charcotravels . I let the boys scramble up the trail-less final peak and get stabbed by cacti while I took a photo from the bottom. Then ultimate adrenaline rush running back to the vans blasting #bassnectar to make it to the store before #beeroclock ! #bigbend #vanfriends #hiketexas #pingpong #rockrunner #singingmexican #buymysouvenirs
