It hasn't been posted to the Official BIBE Alerts page yet, but word is...
Good news! Just announced by Big Bend National Park: "The Big Bend National Park Superintendent has lifted the temporary closure of all High Chisos backpacking campsites, including dispersed (zone) camping in the Blue Creek and Lower Juniper Zones. Full use, both daytime and overnight, of the Chisos high country is now re-opened and available. The Window Trail has also been re-opened at this time."

Right on!  We were among the very last to get permits in the Chisos before they were closed this past April.  They did honor our permits once they were closed, though.  This is great news!
Ah Big Bend, we will soon return to reacquaint ourselves in our ritual of blood, exhaustion and dehydration. How can we resist the temptation to strip ourselves of the maladies of civilization?

Well, it's about time. Last Friday afternoon, it rained enough that we left muddy footprints on one stretch of the Southwest Rim Trail.
