Great pics, everyone.  Now, let's see something really impressive like a picture of a Nissan Leaf or any EV along a backcountry road in Big Bend.  :)

Not our vehicle (though we were drooling) but we saw a sweet custom Toyota expedition vehicle in the Chisos Basin parking lot (March 2015) - and it was from Switzerland!

Would have loved to seen the inside, but never saw the owners...







We also saw an awesome orange Unimog driving into the park as we were driving out - didn't get a picture, but there is a pic on beemerchef's posting #864 on this page: http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/other-stuff/'the-oasis-of-my-soul'-a-lifelong-journey/864/

Here's the one I converted to black and white. It's at the quicksilver mine but you can't really tell...

And yes, I did restore it myself. Except I had a shop in Fort Worth swap the engines.
