It is amazing to us how the Native Americans lived and traveled in the Big Bend. These were some hardy folks. No couch sitters or iPad users in that group!
Although the early residents of this area did not build permanent structures, they did leave a great deal of their lives behind.
If you like cultural history, think about joining us for a 2 hour Jeep tour and walk into one of the many Native American "base camps" in the Big Bend.
You'll need some good walking shoes, a camera and an outdoor mind.
