On our recent trip (last week of April) we did not want to waste our last day in the park, so we visited the sites on the way out, such as the Fossil Bones Exhibit and Dagger Flat. We left the park at sundown, which was, perhaps, not the right thing to do. As we drove north out of the park in darkness, many, many groups of deer appeared on the sides of the roadway...so had to keep the speed down in case any were in the road (~50 mph). I must have seen 60+ deer on the drive from the park to Fort Stockton. Perhaps more encumbering than this were the many birds that kept swooping in front of the car. I think that perhaps our headlights were attracting bugs these birds were going after. That is some freaky country to drive through in the waning dusk, and it was even more surreal at night for me. It seemed as if Nature did not want us to leave the park and left me already missing Big Bend. Man, I want to get back!
Does anyone know if there are owls in that area?
