Is there such a thing as taking a vacation and going to school at the same time?
Well, if you are coming out to the Big Bend - and it's your first time - give some thought to taking Far Flung's Big Bend 101 course by Jeep. We call it 'Round the Bend.
There are no quizzes, homework or books. Just a curious mind is all that is needed for this 6 hour (we call it all day) adventure into Big Bend National Park.
While we can't take in the entire park (that would translate into days, if not a lifetime!), our FFOC professors of natural history, will turn you into true "Big Benders"!
By the way, you don't have to be a first timer to enjoy this course! And we'll bring lunch.
