Nice! I've been trying to decide in when to go again. Sooner sounds better than later.


I really like the mirror magic site too.

Nice pics. Love the Ernst Tinaja reflection shot. Any chance you could sneak past the gate and get some pics of the Boquillas Crossing?

P.S. I split off the campground map discussion. Feel free to do a final QA of my map.  :ranger:

One additional note:

I won a YETI ice chest about a year ago and was very skeptical about it and the cost.....however... I put 20 lbs of ice in it last Saturday afternoon and today (7 days), there is still about 5 lbs left.

My kids got me one for Christmas two years ago. I have never used it because I was afraid it would get stolen. I'll be giving it a little test here pretty soon. That would save me the cost of at least 60 pounds of ice.
