Light shaft through the Natural Entrance at Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

B L A C K B E A R | A Mexican Black bear spotted from the road in huge Big Bend National Park, Texas. This park lies in the middle of the Chihuahuan desert with temperatures rising above 40 degrees Celsius when we visited in the beginning of May. A bit strange to see a bear walking in the desert among cacti....๐ŸŒต#desertlife #blackbear #mexicanblackbear #chihuahuandesert #texas #bigbendnationalpark #usa #unitedstates #verenigdestaten #reizen #reisen #roadtripusa #bradt #natgeo #lonelyplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #theglobewanderer #inlovewithnature #wildlifephotography #travelphotography #wildlifespotting #loveit #farawaybutbeautiful #bears

Ever seen a windmill assembly? Just another ordinary day in far west Texas. Video by @alpinemike. #visitfortdavis #fortdavistx #fortdavistexas #fortdavistxyall #farwesttexas #westtexas #chihuahuandesert #davismountains
Two years ago I was blessed with the courage to pack up my whole car and take off to the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert in New Mexico almost overnight. I had a lot of internal searching to do and I attribute this trip to the person I am today. I learned to be alone, to have unconditional love for myself and above all learned the lengths that my strength can reach. I spent a month tucked away from society, no social media, no constant texting, no other human contact. Just showering myself with my own love โค๏ธ remember that you are perfectly made, and love YOURSELF today! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’– #desert #newmexico #soulsearching #adventure #hippie #journey #wanderlust #acid #psychadelic #photography #chihuahuandesert #brave #spurofthemoment #selflove #gypsy #gypsysoul #love #loveyourself #fun #sunshine #selfcare #youareamazing #youareperfect

In our humble opinion, the Jeff Davis County Courthouse is THE best in the state. It sure is nice in the shade of these apricot trees. What say you, @txhistcomm ? #visitfortdavis #fortdavistx #fortdavistexas #fortdavistxyall #farwesttexas #westtexas #chihuahuandesert #davismountains #apricot
Good Tuesday morning y'all! Did you know the Davis Mountains are home to elk? Thanks to @cmtxphotography for sharing this capture. #visitfortdavis #fortdavistx #fortdavistexas #fortdavistxyall #farwesttexas #westtexas #chihuahuandesert #davismountains #elk
This cottonwood makes the most wonderful sounds as the wind rustles hundreds of dry leaves in its abnormally tall crown surrounded by nomadic gypsum dunes, stretching soaptree yucca, and sprawling creosote bushes. An old root, exposed by the retreating shifting dunes is a perfect place to catch some rare shade and look for rodent bones. #newmexico #cottonwood #whitesands #yucca #dunes #nm #chihuahuandesert

The desert tends to catch my eye with details Iโ€™ve never seen before. Itโ€™s an environment I never thought Iโ€™d connect with this deeply. Hereโ€™s to discovering more of the personally unknown. And hereโ€™s to Texas for preserving this huge playground. . . . . #thorny #bigbendnps #bigbendnationalpark #chihuahuandesert #optoutside #getoutside #macrophotography #texasnaturephotos #texasnature #texas

Don't hang on. Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky...
I took this photo of the abandoned courthouse in Stiles, Texas a couple of years ago. Stiles is a ghost town in Reagan County. That small building on the right was actually the jail. It did not look to be too comfortable. Stiles was the ONLY town in the area when Reagan County was established in 1903. Stiles was made the county seat but was bypassed by the railroad and eclipsed when oil was discovered near Big Lake, which replaced Stiles as the county seat in 1925. The courthouse sat abandoned for decades but was set fire to by an arsonist in 1998. It was actually raining quite heavily this day and I had to wait around for a long time for a break in the drops. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #chihuahuandesert #marfatexas #marathontx #fortstockton #fortdavis #texaslandscape #texaslandscapes #valentinetexas @junkgypsy @texasbootcompany @txstandard #texaslandscape #texaslandscapes #texasdesert @gagehotel @evesgardenbnb #chevy #chevrolet #1958impala @marathontxhouse @visitmarathontexas #biglaketexas #biglaketx #rankintx #rankintexas #stilestexas #stilestx #odessatexas #odessatx @midlandtexas #midlandtx #texontx #texontexas #gardencitytx #gardencitytexas #mccameytx #mccametexas @midkifftx #midkifftexas #sterlingcitytx #sterlingcitytexas @midlandreportertelegram @midlandtxchamber @odessachamber

Opt outside. Explore Mexico. As you visit the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico, you might get lucky and find a โ€˜tinajaโ€™ or small oasis of natural spring water to cool off on a hot summer day! This is across from Texas, in Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Mexico, rancho Las Amapolas, near rancho La Escondida. #explore #getoutdoors #optoutside #wherehaveyourfeetbeen #mexico #chihuahuandesert #nature #westtexas #texas #mexico #tinajas #travelingvicky #landscape #hiking #mexico_amazing #mexicodesconocido #rancholasamapolas #rancholaescondida @mexicodesconocido @mexicotravel
This is the trail head as you depart from the nature center with Mitre Peak in the distance. Please tag us in your photos during your visit. We'd love to see them!๐ŸŒต #chihuahuanDesert #FortDavis #WestTexas #Texas #DesertLife #Hiking #adventure
@carlsbadcavernsnps in Southern New Mexico has 119 known caves which can tunnel more than 1,600 feet below the surface of the Chihuahuan Desert. More than 50 species of amphibians & reptiles, 350+ species of birds and 60+ species of mammals (including 17 species of bats) live within the park. More than 400,000 Mexican Free-Tailed bats populate the caves and are known to fly out of the natural entrance of the cave on a nightly basis. While this park may be remote (150 miles from El Paso, Texas), the grand scale and beauty of the Big Room, the Rock of Ages, the Chandelier, the Doll's Theater and the Temple of the Sun will make the trip an unforgettable experience. . . . . . #carlsbad #carlsbadcaverns #cavern #cave #newmexico #chihuahuandesert #bats #underground #column #stalactites #stalagmites #limestone #pool #bottomlesspit #nature #naturephotography #domes #bigroom #formation #nationalpark

Reverting desertification in the Chihuahuan desert with cattle and proper grazing!! These photos very vividly show the importance of soil health and ground cover. In the areas where soil fertility is higher, (where grasses are established), the creosote leaves are bright green. Opposed to the areas of bare ground where they are nutrient starved and appear to be "dead" or a dull brown. It also demonstrates the importance of healthy roots and deep perenial dominated pastures to help with a more balanced nutient cycle. We have not recieved and moisture since September 2017, 9 months now, and the plants are looking relatitly healthy. It IS possible to revert these shrub infested lands back into lush and productive rangelands!! For those familiar with the West Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona landscapes wouldn't it be so much nicer to drive down the highway surrounded by green plants instead of brown ones? #chihuahuandesert #desert #ranchinginthedesert #soilhealth #soil #grazing #management #holisticmanagement #regenerative #ranching #regenerativeranching
