Pecos River Bridge
It's amazing how high it is. High enough for BASE jumping.
Pecos River. Desolate country
This is really desolate country. Nothing but miles and miles of scrub.

Over those glassy rocks, it's about 200 feet to the desert floor. The rock in the center is a pinacle sticking up from the desert below.

This guy had no fear of people or cameras. I suspect he's used to getting treats since this is right at the hot springs and there are usually people around..

One Man Band
Entertainment at the Starlight Theatre in Terlingua. He really was pretty good.
The entertainment came by to visit with us after his set. He's putting the moves on Becky - one of our group's photographers.
The desert version of Blue Bonnets. Flowers will grow anywhere.
