Even better, IMHO, is his moonlight picture of the Chisos at the Juniper/Dodson junction.
Wake me when it's time to go.

Hard to argue with that.

Crown Mountain from the Dodson/Juniper junction around 4:30 AM.  It was pretty amazing to see this remote landscape so lit up by the full moon!

One of the few times I stopped to take a picture on the Blue Creek.  The blooming sage was breathtaking!  So much of the desert was in bloom in August!

I roamed and rambled, and I foller'ed my footsteps
   To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
   And all around me a voice was a'sounding
   This land was made for you and me

I'm going to throw this one in again because, to me, it screams Big Bend up close and personal.

Apache Canyon

Yep - you've been there!!!!!  I remember that tree.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Buck had some great shots on his Late September Fandango. Too bad we can't print videos.
There are a few more photos here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/7cjtCEHJmSyREsNp8

Deadline for nominations will be Monday, October 22 at 10:00PM.
I'm going to enact some Moderator Privilege and extend the nomination period a few more days, just because there were a few more nominations I want to possibly make but I'm not sure when I'll get around to tracking them down.

New deadline: Monday, October 29 at 10:00PM

I'm thinking we could put together a pretty good calendar with just photos from Homer Wilson's One Helluva Bender.
