Yucca and Bluebonnets in Big Bend 22

Chihuahuan Desert, Big Bend National Park

With Santa Elena Canyon and Cerro Castellan in the distance, bluebonnets and a yucca bloom in the springtime at Big Bend National Park. Located along the Texas border, this amazing and rugged state park holds amazing sights if you are willing to make the drive this far south. The spring can often offer a splash of colors in a red-rocked Chiihuahuan Desert, and the drive along the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive is one of the best in the nation.
