Cool...I won!  Love to join in 'da' fun.  I have a large photo collection of the best place on earth and stories to match.

Maybe I'll throw a mystery photo out there.

I check up on the big bend from time to time and stumbled upon this site.   Nice to chat with other Big Bend fans.

Thank you David for taking the time to put this together.

Pardo...

Oops, Don Pardo informs me that stilldawn is a guest and is disqualified from winning the parting contestant prize!   :lol:

Anyway, neat, I just realized that David's pic and Ms. Chios Muse's pic are different - slighltly.  I thought she had just flipped it and reposted it.  WRONG!  

So, what is the MOST popular picture taken at BBNP?  ie. what do most visitors take a picture of?

Most Photographed....

I'm also adding these two for selection. I also think the entry sign is very popular, hell we all have one.....I lost mine to Anakin's files though.. :cry: along with all of my South Rim pics. Although I think the SR pics are popular, not everone can make it up there.....therefore I would not think it to be one of the most photographed.

And yes Shane, you are correct, it is not the same pic.....I just immediately knew where it was because of how close they are.....almost if we were standing in the exact same spot when we took it!!!  Who walked in whose footsteps?  :D

How many tourists can go to the Basin and not take at least one pic of The Big House?

It's even easier to get the picture of the window from Ross Maxwell Scenic drive - no pesky hills and weaving turns and limitations on how big your RV can be.
