Got back to Big Bend National Park over Thanksgiving 2015. No mountain lion sightings but we did see some bears.
I did my favorite hike in a new order: Blue Creek Canyon up to South Rim and then down Pinnacles. The hoodoos in Blue Creek Canyon were gorgeous in the morning sun and the grasses on Pinnacles trail were golden in the afternoon sun.
We got to the hot springs during the day and found the short 1 mile hike up and around the bluff very lovely.
We had the most beautiful weather 70s and 40s and a few awesome cloud viewings.
And I finally got to walk into Santa Elena’s Canyon, just spectacular.
