Big Bend NP-December-2004
The week before Christmas, 2004,l my wife and I camped out for five nights in the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park. The 1500 foot climb up from the basin, elevation 5600 feet, provides stunning views of the mountains and deserts beyond. The first four days and nights were cool and clear, affording outstanding photographs of the moon and  starry skies and desert scenes lit only by moonlight. The last evening, a front roared through, dropping the temperature into the lower 20's and bringing a chilly fog that filled up the desert and covered the trees with frost. The winds blew clouds on and off the usually arid peaks, shrouding them in ever-changing mist. These unusual conditions provided unusual views, as seen in some of the later images, below.
