The Road to the Chisos Basin is one of the most scenic roads in the Big Bend National Park. Changes in elevation are accompanied by changes in vegetation.
A pair of American Agaves (aka Sentry Plants or Century Plants) against the Chisos Mountains in the Big Bend National Park.
I photographed this moonset over the Chisos mountain last December during my fall trip to Big Bend NP. The sunrise light was perfect.
This photograph of the Chisos Mountain Range and the two Century Plants was taken at sunset on the western side of the Big Bend National Park.
We normally stop along Glen Springs Road to photograph the sunrise onto Nugent Mountain and the Chisos Mountain Range on our way out of Big Bend National Park.
The Big Bend National Park is located in the Chihuahuan Desert. This desert is the second largest in North America, covering about 140,000 square miles.
