1) The NP site says "no pets in the backcountry" but another place it says that your pets can only go where your car goes. So I am assuming that means my dog can be with me on a leash in the designated backcountry roadside camping site but he can't go with me on trails or hikes. I understand that I can't even leave him while I go for hikes, which means I can't hike either. We both love to hike so that is a disapointment to both of us. We will have to go over to the State park to get in our hikes. Have I got this right?
2) Assuming my dog can go with me, which backcountry campsites do you recommend I sign up for when I get there. I don't even have an itinerary yet for my trip to the park so maybe you could give me a suggested daily itinerary and places to camp. My main goal for a campsite is open views to sunrise and sunset with an interesting foreground, since that is always the best light for photography.
3) This may be a question better left for another forum, but, in your opinion where are the best places along the road for general nature photography?
4) Are there any particular places I should go to look for wildflowers in bloom?

One of the great things about BIBE is the ability to take a pic just about anywhere and get a good shot. Generally speaking, the west side of the park along the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive offers most of the amazing vistas BIBE has to offer. Be sure to do it again around sunset as you will be amazed at the colors the desert will offer you during this time.
