Mule Ears at Sunrise, Big Bend National Park 23

Mule Ears, Big Bend National Park

From a distant ridge, this photograph looks across a valley on the western slope of the Chisos Mountains to the iconic Mule Ears rock formation. Taken well before sunrise, the sky was glowing in the warm morning light, and the layers of mountains created depth in this Big Bend National park image.
