Driving back out of Big Bend National Park on the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, I saw this view and yelled "PULL OVER!" at my brother. When nature looks as pretty as a painting, you gotta stop and enjoy it!

Take the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive through Big Bend National Park, and you'll find yourself in the Santa Elena Canyon where the Rio Grande forms the border of Texas and Mexico. Sometimes it pays off to turn around for one last look as you head back to the car, which is how I got this shot of a random stranger who had stopped to admire this awesome view!
RTD tip number 81: Bring the baby. One thing I hear a lot regarding young kids and road trips is, "they won't even remember it." So what? You will. Just like you remember their first steps or the time they wore their cereal bowl as a hat, you will definitely remember your little one staring in wide-eyed wonder at the walls of a towering canyon or squealing excitedly at an elk on the side of the road. Yes, it requires more effort and planning and sure you'll be changing diapers on the trail, but you don't have to put the adventures on pause just because you have a new tiny human in your life. Bring them along and make the your trip that much sweeter. #roadtripdad#RTDtips#nationalparkgeek#bigbend#bigbendnationalpark#americandesert#chihuahuandesert#gowest#rossmaxwellscenicdrive#exploretexas
