Big Bend Wildflowers and Cerro Castellan 11

Big Bend National Park

Bluebonnets and Desert Marigolds add color to the Chihuahuan Desert on the western side of Big Bend National Park. Not far away, Cerro Castellan rises over 3000’ into the afternoon sky as soft, high clouds drift by. The spring of 2019 brought an epic bloom to the desert, and the valleys and washes were bright wil color in many parts of the park.
