Big Bend National Park

The dry desert climate of Big Bend National Park in Texas means that there’s rarely a cloud in the sky. The result? Crisp, still nights where you can dress warm and spot distant galaxies. No wonder it’s another of America’s designated International Dark Sky Parks!

Big Bend National Park in Texas is a vast landscape made up of unique limestone caves to explore, mountains to hike, and hundreds of fascinating bird species.

Lots of great easy hikes for kids, aside from Santa Elena Canyon where our 4 year old started walking backwards towards the cliff's edge! Mountains, deserts, canyons, Rio Grande, dinosaur fossils and more! One of the least-visited parks because it's far from most anything but totally worth the trek! Stay at Roadrunner Travelers RV park in Terlingua. 👍

Birding and entymology off the hook—camping, hiking, river crossing
