Chisos Basin, Big Bend National Park, TX

Site 44, Chisos Basin Campground, Big Bend National Park, TX
Tuesday, March 15, 2016, Chisos Basin, Big Bend National Park, TX, 31.4 Miles, 5,109.7 Miles for the Trip

I don't think there are going to be any photos - the parking lot at the Chisos Basin Visitor Center is completely over run, as well as the park's WiFi. I did get one photo up loaded, but that was it. I'll try again later.

I got together with the bicyclists next door for a pu pu since all of us have been to Hawaii (a Hawaiian tradition I'm used to calling "Happy Hour"). Talked awhile before breaking for dinner. The burritos were good, although putting together the Dutch oven to do in 45 minutes what a microwave would do in 2 minutes makes me think that traveling without one wasn't a great idea!

I'm in site 44, a parking space along a fairly narrow campground road. I squeezed over as far as possible & hope I don't get sideswiped. The campground is full, as is the rest of them in the park. There was a couple of empty sites at Rio Grande Village Campground as I pulled out, but I suspect they filled quickly.

Well, it is later. I decided to hike to the Window, a 3.6 mile round trip that feels like a 10 mile hike - on gravel & lots of stairs. After returning, I read in the shade for a bit. As soon as I finish putting this together, I'll drive to the Visitor Center to try to post again.

The rest of the photos are at today's LakeshoreImages page.

Don't know about dinner, right now I'm too tired to eat!.

Until the next internet connection -
