"Big Bend is what Beethoven reached for in music; it is panorama without beginning or end."
-Ludwig Bemelmans, author
Visit an abandoned quicksilver mining town from the early 20th century. See the dilapidated old school house complete with the crumbling slate wall and the cemetery where hundreds of old mine workers are buried. Pray at the alter of the local Catholic Church.
Nothing says Big Bend Country quite like the panoramic views of the big skies, ever expanding land and stately mountains. See remnants of old abandoned communities, ranches, and mining companies. Check out Big Bend National Park's wettest waterfall!
Big Bend National Park is America's only National Park complete with its own self-contained mountain range, the Chisos Mountains. Here, there are amazing views of the Chihuahuan Desert expanding below the formidable sheer cliffs.
