They pointed out a Canyon, they called Diablo, where they said there were tinajas, but it is a hike over there.
I love the shot with the century plant and El Pico. Outstanding!
Bill, Al, David et al.,I recently returned from Big Bend and have become interested in learning more about El Pico. I read a long thread from 2008: http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/serranias-del-burro-del-carmens-el-carmen/nov08sierra-del-carmen-puerto-rico-mine-boquillas-del-carmen-and-the-tunnel/with youtube videos from Homero Jimemez of the Puerto Rico mine, along with pictures from Al and others - which was fantastic - but unfortunately all the pictures that homerboy2u posted no longer seem to show up, though the GPS coordinates he posted were most helpful.Anyways - I was wondering if someone would be willing to explain a bit more about El Pico, Terminal, the mines, El Jardin, etc. - to explain the possible routes for El Pico. Can one actually climb to the top of El Pico? Or only to the base? From studying the maps, this is what I think are the coordinates for El Pico - is this correct: 29.211068, -102.814455Thanks.
