It’s all gloomy here today so I thought it was time for some more Big Bend pictures! These are the balanced rocks on the Grapevine Hills trail. We did this hike with our friends David and Jolyn and we had a blast!
It’s an easy hike out to the rocks — mostly flat and only 2.2 miles. The hard part is slogging through some sand.
There’s all kinds of neat plants to look at on the way including desert marigold, butterfly bush, cacti, and ocotillo! Oh and some globe mallows and a neat flame acanthus that I still have to look up! And there’s all kinds of cool rocks on the way too!
After the hike we had lunch and then went for a mountain bike ride on the Grapevine Hills road — what fun! Jason and David found the big ole grapevine out there too!
Another great day at Big Bend!
