Big Bend Conservancy
I think if I saw two mountain lions in a day...or even one for that matter...it would come in a close second.
Yeah, when my babies are way older:!: At this point, there is no way I'd get a photo as I'd be freaking out trying to get my babies on my shoulders and taking defensive positions.
Dah Coachwhip attack of 2005 :!:
Nice board you all have here... I consider myself an avid "Bender" but I have learned lots reading this board...It is hard to pick out my best Big Bend experience but a couple do stand out... These are more of adventures...About 15 years ago while in college I was in the park with a few of my buddies off River Road near the San Vicente crossing when we managed to get the truck stuck in deep mud near the river... So it is summertime hot and we are covered in mud from trying to push the truck out and we are just sitting there drinking beer trying to figure how we're going to get out of our little situation when an hombre from across the river shows up on horseback... He surveys our predicament and after talking with him shortly he returns with a few of his amigos, also on horseback and manage to pull the truck out of the mud... We were so thankful that we shared the rest of our Pabst and Lone Star with them...Another trip also back in my college days in the summer I was on an overnight backcountry trip out near Mule Ears when the sky suddenly grew dark and it began to rain and then hail golf balls... We were in a very unprotected area and had nothing other than our packs... So there we are huddled under our packs trying to avoid the painful impacts of the large hail stones... Then suddenly it was over as quickly as it started... The entire ordeal lasted maybe 10 minutes but I'll never forget it...
