I spent several days in the area, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Even got the bicycle back in service. I have some pictures to add later from my digital camera, but the one below is special. It is from Marathon, Texas, where our father was raised. The two single headstones are his parents - our grandparents. The dual one to the right is his twin brother and wife.

The scenery in Big Bend is incredible! It's one wow after another. I love this part of the Chihuahan Desert. I spent a week in Alpine at a campground just outside of town. Occasionaly heard coyotes at night.
