Ha! That's Horseshoe Bend in AZ. Not even close to BB.  :icon_eek:

It appears to me that she just rewrote (or copied) from the NPS site. Read her paragraph beginning with "Primitive Car Camping", then click the hyperlink to the BIBE site. Almost exactly the same wording but some of the sentences are awkward. Awkward enough to make me wonder if this was done programmatically.

"Ground camping"? I think only a computer program would come up with something like this.

Of course the photo is not Big Bend.

I think you may be right, computer generated and horribly done!

Either it worked and they removed it, or my office is blocking the photo. (Sometimes they do that on photobucket type sites)

Yep. Cheesy "article" is still there but they have removed the picture. Maybe they'll actually make an attempt to get a picture from BB but I won't be surprised if they just leave it without a picture.

About a year ago, I ran across one of my photos on a travel blog. It was a photo I took on a hike into Presa Canyon. (Good one too!). I confronted the owner/author and requested she take it down or credit me. She denied that she lifted it and said "we must have stood in the same place"!! The dumb thing is she posted the photo with my original file name and still refused to take it down or credit me after I told her that. I ended up having to write a letter to her web hosting company and file a notice of copyright infringement. She finally took it down but still insisted it was her photo.

http://marysblack.com/2013/11/02/hiking-presa-canyon/ - My opening comment is the last one on the page. It surprises me that she didn't delete it.
