For years, we tried to figure out why folks come out to Big Bend.
How about the miles and miles of open country away from the hordes of civilization? Ok, Ok, we know! It's because you can walk along a different trail everyday for life and not see it all.
No. Let's try floating miles and miles of the Rio Grande wondering what lies around the next bend.
Could it be just sitting on a porch somewhere listening to the loud noise of silence?
Frankly, in the end, it doesn't make any difference. Why someone comes to Big Bend is not important as the fact that they do - or should.
We hope Big Bend National Park is near the top of your bucket list. Because we know that once you've made it here, you'll never stop loving this magnificent country.
Those of us at Far Flung? Well, we've pulled up a chair on the porch. Waiting for you to arrive.
