You have covered a lot of ground.  Yes the last two from the Chimneys trail.  I must have been toasty down at Terlingua Abajo in May. 

Welcome to the board!  What are you plans for your next trip?

Thanks badknees, I have made the correction regarding the dear.

Thanks mule ears for the confirmation. My memory and my notes were failing me about the location of the last two pics.

As I recall, it was pleasant at Terlingua Abaja, not hot. It's a terrific campsite.

My next trip is OML before or after Thanksgiving. Probably solo, but a friend or two may join me.

Thanks for sharing your photos Keepa.  They are great!  It's amazing how much the park has greened up after getting all these recent rains.   I went back to the photos badknees posted on his recent trip and it looks like a different park.  https://mirrormagic.com/2016/09/11/chisos-mountains-summer-rain/

It never gets old.  Great shot of the bear.  They don't often stay still long enough.
