Primitive Dirt Roads in Big Bend National Park

Located in southwest Texas, on the U.S.-Mexico border, the Big Bend National Park is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the state. Scenic vistas, diverse wildlife, and historic siteswhere night skies are dark as coal and rivers carve temple-like canyons in ancient limestone. This remote park features rugged mountains, steep canyons, amazing views, unparalleled night skies, and solitude in a high desert setting.
