Lost Mine Trail, Big Bend NP

Wednesday, March 7, 2007

sunny 0 °F

After a good breakfast we drive up to the Chisos Basin area and hike the Lost Mine trail. It's about 5 miles round trip with ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE SCENERY!!! It's a must do if you ever get here. It took us about 4 hours since we stopped at every shady spot that had a nice view on the way up, and spent at least 30 minutes at the top while eating our lunch and enjoying the incredible 360 degree view of the park. We went through 5 large bottles of water and it was tiring, but well worth the effort. Not sure what the temp was on the mountain, but the campground high today was 88 degrees and sunny.

After the hike we wander around the Chisos Basin area, including another nature walk to the Windows overlook. Then we drive over to the Dugout Wells nature walk and do that one also, before returning to the campsite.
