Enjoying Big Bend National Park: A Friendly Guide to Adventures for Everyone, now in its second edition, will help turn every trip to Big Bend National Park into a memorable adventure.
Veteran naturalist Gary Clark and photographer Kathy Adams Clark help you choose the best hike or drive in the park, based on the season in which you visit; the number of days you have in the park; and your activity, age, and fitness levels. The Clarks provide valuable practical information, along with a descriptive list of items essential for being outdoors in desert and mountain environments.
They describe more than thirty activities available in the park: two-hour or half- and full-day adventures; adventures for the physically fit or physically challenged; and adventures with children, for nature lovers, or in vehicles. The Clarks also point out scenic highlights and animals and plants that might be seen along the way. Enjoy Big Bend National Park like never before.
