Pushin thru the Sandhills of West Texas badlands, in route to Carlsbad NM... I absolutely love the #chihuahuandesert
The lack of cars on the road is comforting. The lack of trees is tranquil. I love love love it here.
I think the biggest thing we discovered while in Big Bend was that you’d need a solid two weeks to see enough of the landscape. The place was such a dream; the animals, the mountains, the trails, even the rocks lining paths and roads came in every color. I mean, this is the only region you can find yourself purple prickly pears. 😱💜🌵
We’ve already started talking about our next (longer!) visit to this gorgeous National Park.
Driving through #NewMexico , we stopped at the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site where over 21,000 glyphs that date back to 900-1400AD are carved into rocks, and then we walked 800ft. below ground at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park -- which was totally mind-blowing. Who knew the #ChihuahuanDesert was so crazy?! #50stateshasheart
It is hard for some to understand just how close the ranch lies to the Chihuahuan Desert. This picture was taken yesterday, the mountain range along the horizon is part of the Sierra Madres in Mexico, more specifically this range is the Sierra Madres Oriental. This range lies on the eastern edge of the Chihuahuan Desert, roughly 100 miles west of the ranch. We have several plant species here on the ranch that are endemic to the Chihuahuan Desert. The ranch headquarters is in the right foreground. #chihuahuandesert#sierra#sierramadre#mountains#desert#sanpedro#mexico#ranchlife#oldmexico#southtexas#riogrande
