Balanced Rock, Late Afternoon 1

Balanced Rock, Big Bend National Park

Balanced Rock stands at the end of the Grapevine Hills Trail on the north side of the Chisos Mountains as one of the parks most well-known icons. Its an easy hike, and the views from here are pretty nice, too. This photograph was taken on a very pleasant late afternoon in October. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
