We are going to Big Bend National Park the first week in February and I can’t wait! I LOVE to camp and I even love hiking even though while I’m doing it I complain a lot. Let me tell you this park is amazing, we have camped a lot and its my favorite place. It’s the least visited National Park in the US and when your there you can feel it. There is nothing and nothing but you and it for what seems like forever. I told Nick today I was getting excited about it and he said he wanted to prescient me with a challenge, I figured a fitness or hiking one. However to my surprise he challenged me to oil paint an entire picture of a landscape in just the time we are there. This is a big challenge, one of my first oil paintings I started three years ago and I’m still working on. We are staying in one of the cabins which is a first for us because we usually tent camp so I would have a place to store my paints. So challenge accepted! We plan on hiking to the peak. Last time we went up to the rim. I plan on writing a more detailed post about that because there is too much to go into. And pictures, of course ill post pictures.
