We got the chance to tour West Texas during our travels down south. If you’re in the Marfa area, you can’t miss the opportunity to see Big Bend National Park. The area has the distinct characteristics, unique to the Chihuahuan Desert. Massive rock formations fill the wide open landscapes. The area’s geological history is rich and dates back to the dinosaurs. With its great beauty also comes great risk. The temperatures are known to soar well above 100 °F, so don’t forget to bring water.
