A very memorable daytrip shared with my girlfriend in the first week of April.  We spent the entire day exploring in my 4x4.  We started on Glenn Springs Road in the early morning.  Then taking our maiden voyage thru Black Gap and after an ice chest lunch at the Elephant Tusk trailhead we headed along River Road East finally hitting pavement at Rio Grande Village.  It was the best prickley pear blooms I have experienced in my 28 year love affair with Big Bend.  We finished off the excursion with a jaw dropping sunset near the RGV tunnel.  We watched the bats untill twilight turned to dark. Then gradually a bright halo appeared above the Del Carmens.  It looked as if an alien aircraft was about to blast into view.  Minutes later the moonrise gave us as awesome a show as did the sunset.
Thanks for asking.  That photo brought back some very fond memories of a quite long and adventure filled day.
