That is exactly correct, if you like being regulated to the hilt.

Otherwise, the Solitario area is Big Bend without the regulatory overhead or the crowds.

You guys talk like the Solitario isn't IN the Big Bend.

If you want to see the Solitario p close and personal, I would suggest an overnight camping trip to Tres Papalotes Campsite in Big Bend Ranch State Park. While you don't necessarily need a 4x4 to get there, it does save wear on your tires once you leave the main park road. It will take you about three and a half hours from Terlingua to get there or two and a a half from Presidio. Make sure and fill up on gas before you enter the park, and get all the water you need at the Sauceda Ranger Station on the way. Give us a call if you need help planning your trip!

Just realize that Big Bend Ranch State Park can be habit-forming.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that he's talking about the Solitario section of Terlingua Ranch.

That was my impression as well.
