Milky Way over Big Bend Ranch State Park 1

Dom Rock at Big Bend Ranch State Park

From atop Dom Rock on a starry night, the Milky Way rolls across “the other side of nowhere” in Big Bend Ranch State Park. Below, the Rio Grand flows east towards Big Bend National Park, eventually emptying into the Gulf of Mexico. The river divides Texas and Mexico, and on the right, FM 170 can be seen winding its way just north of the river. This road between Presidio and Lajitas is one of the most beautiful drives in Texas.
