Another Eventful Day
We stayed in Fort Stockton, Texas last night where I snapped this picture that says everything about the town---out in the middle of nowhere with a few scattered trees here and there, oil wells, windmills, and train tracks heading into the sunset. This morning we were in Big Bend National Park by 9 am, and below you see John with Dog Canyon in the background; it was our first hike of the day just 4 miles. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at the lodge, so we bummed around for a while and then took our second 5-mile hike down to the Window, which is the "V" at the center of the blue sky picture. On the way back we saw Casa Grande up above us---the massive square of rock rising into the heavens.
