I really like the pointy hat you were wearing.  Where can I get one of those?
First Russian Collusion, then Mueller, then Obstruction, then illegal payment to Stormy Daniels, then tax returns. Now no formal vote on impeachment for a 30 min. phone call to Ukraine

No crime. No evidence, just more secret investigations

Same place.....

Not to be confused with the Boquillas Canyon Overlook (which is much easier to get to ;))

Sorry for the confusion.

Boquillas Canyon Overlook - on the Park maps is a parking area near the end of the Boquillas Canyon Road - easy for tourons

Boquillas Canyon Overlook in my video =  Randell's - much harder to get too, but spectacular. The parking area....not so much.

Awesome video!  My 14 year old saw this and wants me to take him.  It'll have to wait until next winter, but it'll give us something to look forward to.

Very creative badknees, really enjoyed it. Looks like you left the main trail earlier than we did and took a wider berth around the pouroff - think I'll go your way next time (and the staying high out of the brush part too)

Thanks Alan. They say the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line. Maybe so, but not always the best route in BB.

Don't know about shortest, but I can almost guarantee the sharpest distance between 2 points in BB is a straight line.

Wowza. I could watch these things all day. They're ALMOST  :icon_wink: as good as being there.  Keep up the amazingly good work, BK!
