The Solitario before Sunrise 106-3

Fresno Canyon and the Solitario, Big Bend Ranch

From the edge of a cliff overlooking Fresno Canyon in Big Bend Ranch State Park, this landscape photograph was taken about 30 minutes before sunrise as light began to illuminate the skies above the Solitario. This remote portion of west Texas is amazing and sees relatively few visitors. In the times I’ve trekked to this location, I’ve not seen another soul.
