Pictures from Big Bend National Park

While interning at TracLabs in Houston, I took a mini-vacation over Memorial Day weekend to hike around Big Bend National Park, located in southwest Texas on the Rio Grande. It was hot, super-dry, and a 10 hour drive from Houston, but I enjoyed exploring the mountains and getting out of Houston.

The high fire danger prohibited backcountry camping in the higher elevations, so I hiked about 15 miles on Saturday and did a bunch of shorter hikes on Sunday.
