I like those, Bdann!  Thanks for putting that together.


Is it my imagination, or does it look like some of the vegetation is not very thick in those photos?  It looks like they were taken some time back and today, it sure seems like a lot more growth in the basin area.

One of the most significant changes to the landscape of the Big Bend since park establishment is vegetation. Green Gulch and the Basin (as well as the park as a whole) look nearly denuded in historic photographs. So you have noticed something significant that those postcards capture well.

When did they Stop allowing horses to be used for trips up to the South Rim?  I am thinking there was a commercial wrangler service in the 1980's that did trips to the window and S. Rim... TWWG

There were horseback rides in the Basin for many years.  I don't remember when they stopped, but there is a link somewhere on the park website to a study that recommended stopping them.  There was too much damage to the trails, plant life, etc.

I think this one shows that the most:



I'll be working on some more albums this week.  I'm not sure if I should group them by specific trip or group them by area of the park.
