Today we drove from Marathon to Big Bend National Park. I had never been to the park so we took the "one day tour" and saw a good portion of the park. We saw the Chisos Mountains and took a hike on the Window Trail that gives a good view of the desert through a "window" in the mountains. We took photos and Doris saw a ...
