Lost Mine

Legend has it that if you travel the Lost Mine Trail on Easter Sunday, you’ll find gold.

It’s fun to think about, but the real gold is in this popular Big Bend hike. Great views, even better pictures and tons of things to see.

With a Far Flung guide watching your back.  If you find the gold, can we go "halvsies"?
