I feel pretty lucky to see Big bend national park in the rain. #rain #bigbend #bigbendnationalpark #nps #nationalpark #nikon #outdoors #chihuahuandesert #desert
My mission to the Guadalupe Mtns was a bust but I found myself out on sunset run in the Franklin Mountians rising to the north of El Paso. Aswome to run in a new place. And great to be back in the Southwest. #trailrunning #singletrack #franklinmountains #fanklinmountainsstatepark #sunsetrun #sunset #chihuahuandesert
#throwback This time last year we had snow on the ground. I hope we get to see some real snow again soon! . . . #littleeve #borzoi #russianwolfhound #sighthound #snowday #westtexas #chihuahuandesert
Flashback to one of my favorite views as a housekeeper. La loma, a little over a week ago 💘💘 #fbf #westtexas #chihuahuandesert #micorazon #housekeeping
Feathered gold: This hand stamped and colored Baird’s Sparrow keeps me company in my tiny 1983 Fleetwood camper while on assignment in Mexico. At @ranchoeluno and three other sites in the Chihuahuan Desert, we are tracking this species to understand why it’s populations are declining so precipitously. I’m worried about them and they don’t even know it. #bairdssparrow #get_imprinted #blockprint #reliefprint #hechodemano #chihuahuandesert #grasslandbirds #gorrion #printmaking #handmadestamp #coloradoartist #fortcollinsmakers #linocut #birdconservancyoftherockies #justprintmaking
My phone was almost dead when we walked up to check out the Lewis Canyon Petroglyph Site. This place is incredible, around two acres of petroglyphs pecked into the bedrock of the canyon rim above the river. I did not get to take as many pictures as I wanted. I had been before on some childhood Pecos trips, but this was my first time seeing it with my archaeology eyes 👀👀👀!

@redridinghoodella posted a blog about her recent run of the Monumental Loop. Get some coffee and read it on this rainy morning. #thisismonumental #fumattmason #onlyknowntime ⌨️: ellaraff.wordpress.com
Desert sunset 🌄 ---- ------------ ------------------------- ** #desertsunset #chihuahuandesert #desert #newmexico #newmexicosunset #imoldnow
The beauty of Carlsbad Caverns is hard to capture in pictures and must be seen in person. Taking the Natural Entrance Route and Big Room Route made for about 2.5 miles of trails and an 800' descent/climb, totaling about 9,000 steps. I made the ascent in a half hour, with several short stops to catch my breath and hydrate. Excuse me while I find the nearest buffet to fuck up.
Doritos in the desert!! #ukulele #chihuahuandesert
“Querencia, is a place from which one’s strength of character is drawn. Folklore tells us that ‘no hay mejor querencia que tu corral,’ there is no better place than your corral — a typical saying that alludes to where someone is raised, the place of one’s memories, of one’s affections, of things one loves and, above all, where one feels safe.” -New Mexico poet and historian Estevan Arellano #NewMexico #querencia
Day 5 Distractions, we stopped to eat lunch and check out the "Electric Shaman" rock art panel and found a huge nasty fresh shit that someone (looking at you sit on top kayakers who passed us that morning) left, un-buried, basically right where the water ended. This is why we can't have nice things. I get the whole ultralight adventuring thing, but if you aren't going to carry a groover/rocket box on your trip at least have the decency and respect for the resource and fellow boaters to walk far enough down the side canyon and bury your turd.

It’s hot chocolate weather in the desert! Winter is a fantastic time to enjoy the desert and mountains of Big Bend. Warm and pleasant in the day, chilly at night. Come stay with us and enjoy the fire pits with amazing views of the stars! #bigbendnationalpark #visitbigbend #terlingua #terlinguaranch #chisosmountains #bigbend #bigbendstatepark #studybutte #mountains #campfire #marshmallows #hotchocolate #smores #desert #chihuahuandesert #fossilknobridge
More desert. The V-22 Osprey. So cool to watch and photograph this. And, of all places, in little Grants, NM. Training out of Kirtland AFB. I wonder what the coyote thought?

Another beautiful wild cactus. This one goes by a few different names but I like Devils head cactus (echinocactus horizonthalonius). In the spring it will have pink flowers. A lot of cactus in this area grow under or near other larger plants for protection and filtered sunlight. Devils head cactus prefer full sun and being out in the open. This exposes them to being trampled by animals so they’ve got a much tougher exterior with unforgiving spines, which gives it its other common name Horse Crippler cactus. These cactus grow solo and don’t create off-shoots or pups, they only reproduce from seeds. This was the largest one we came across and probably over a decade old at least. . . . . . #devilsheadcactus #echinocactus #echinocactushorizonthalonius #wildcactus #chihuahuandesert #chihuahuandesertplants

We’ve been thinking about finding a dirt route to connect the Monumental Loop to the AZT for a while. @yourfriendkuba asked last week and that was all it took for us to look a little closer. Link for an unverified, and likely tougher than you’d think, route is up yonder in our bio. Yes, you can go south of the Chiricahuas and avoid the climb and cold. You know us though, beauty first. #bikepacking #connections #thisismonumental
Organ Mountains, New Mexico.
Day 4 was kind of long and we ended up camping on a kind of sketchy ledge out of general exhaustion. Thankfully, the river went down as opposed to mere inches up it would have needed to get us wet; Day 4, Lower #Pecos #River #TX . . . . . . . . . . . #canyons #theoutbound #outside_project #wildernessculture #igtexas #texasbackroads #txbkrds #texasgram #chihuahuandesert #theelys #TODSL #outsideculture #getoutside #igsouthwest #protectthewest #spiritofthewest  #shareyourtexas #hikingtexas #visittexas #texas #PecosRiver #LowerPecos #westtexas #texasflood #ig_today #canoe #canoeing
