Fort Worth is where the “the west begins” and by God, the grand finale is the far-flung Texas corner called, Big Bend National Park. Once submerged beneath an in-land sea, Big Bend is the result of volcanic activity and the up-thrusting of colliding fault lines. Here is found flat deserts, rolling hills, mountains, basins and building-sized boulders cast about as though the Almighty had been shooting marbles. A very few early American structures are still standing here and Indian rock art is prevalent in select areas. Under sunny skies and indigo nights of glittering starlight, Big Bend is well-described by the official Texas tourism slogan that boasted, “Texas: It’s like a whole other country.”


Nowhere is that more appropriately applied than to the diversity of Big Bend.


The photographs below are from my visit to Big Bend in December of 2010. You can start with the first image and view them one after another (they're linked) or click any image and go directly to the web page for that photograph, photography data and associated narrative.


Once you are on the image page, you then have the option of viewing the image in a seperate browser window and in full screen mode.


I hope you enjoy the narratives and photographs as much as I enjoyed living them.
