I wish that I knew who did it. I would turn them in, collect the reward, and donate it to the dinosaur exhibit  :eusa_eh: :eusa_shifty: :dance:

I'm in San Antonio and always willing to drive for a cold beer and great conversation with people who know more than I do about something I'm keenly interested in.

The views expressed may not be mine in five minutes.


I'm east of you about an hour maybe a tad more. My son lives on the east side of SAT. If we are talking BiBe I would have to sit there and listen intently. Every time I start to think I know something about BiBe someone comes along and walks across the park or ropes down to Cattail Falls from the Basin or frolics across the Mesa de Anguila etc


We can talk about cabins... I've stayed in some of them  :eusa_eh: :icon_lol:

 :icon_lol: None of us understands the whole of The Bend. We're like blind men, each clutching our own little part of the elephant and describing what we've found. All educational, and pretty much all true, even when it's contradictory. That's one of the reasons I love BBC. You can hang with it for years and still learn something new every day.  I'll give you guys a heads-up next time I'm passing through San Antonio.

I remember checking off most of the named hikes,  backpacking through the Chisos and thinking I had done most of the park. Then I found this place.

At one time I looked at faraway corners and wondered what was there.  Now I look off on the distance at faraway corners and wonder who is there.

I just wish I was a couple hours closer.

Ditto on everything.
