Title: Texas Highways Big Bend articles
Post by: Quatro on January 19, 2015, 12:14:00 PM
February's Texas Highways magazine issue focuses on the Big Bend region including two articles by Laurence Parent.  First, a trip report of a Mesa De Anguila overnight trip with some nice photos.  Second, an article entitled Hidden Canyons of the Big Bend with very short descriptions of each along with difficulty ratings:  Closed Canyon (1 star), Ojito Adentro (1), Cinco Tinajas (1), Upper Burro Mesa Trail (2 star), Slickrock Canyon (2), Lower Shutup (3 stars), and Upper Rancherias (3). He mentions he is revising his book, Hiking Big Bend National Park, which makes me wonder if he will include some  BBRSP hikes also. 

Also, there is an article on historic hotels in the area (not a Parent article).  Doesn't look like the current issue is reflected on-line yet though.
