Closed Canyon

What is it about cracks in the earth, that we find so fascinating?

Would you like to see one in the Big Bend that you can walk into and explore?  Add in a Far Flung naturalist and you have a great little 3 hour walk.

And that's not all. On the way to Closed Canyon, we'll make several stops.  One at an old movie set and the other on top of Texas's steepest paved road - Big Hill.  Bring your camera as National Geographic rates this drive as one of America's top 10!

The Big Bend Ranch State Park (that's where it's located) calls it Closed Canyon.  We call it awesome.

By the way, if you are staying at the Lajitas Resort, this one is perfect!  We'll be whizzing right by - and we'll pick you up!
