Big Bend Ranch Morning 429-2

Big Hill, Big Bend Ranch State Park

Soft skies of pink and blue welcome the morning in one of the most beautiful locations in west Texas. Known as the Big Hill, this lofty vantage point rests along FM 170 between Presidio and Lajitas. The highway skirts the southern border of Big Bend Ranch State Park and parallels the Rio Grande. At one point, a small peak rises above the river. It is here this image was taken, and the beauty of the Rio Grande valley stretching west awakens under a morning pastel sky.
