Anyone care to guess where the center of the universe is?  Well, of course it's in Big Bend.....that's a given! but, i mean, specifically? well, i do!  I have it narrowed down to the tip of a finger:


This, my Big Bend Friends, is the center of the universe! But, be careful,and watch your step ;)

I think you nailed it....Nirvana Point seems likely...plus the picture (at least the non-distorted part) looks like a portion of the Nirvana Point pic that was posted a couple of weeks back...
