Swans1 Chisos Moutains, Texas

Like many of Americas' National Parks, it's somewhere you end up only if you've planned to be there.  Not only is it a significant drive from any major city, but the park itself is enormous, over 801,000 acres in south west Texas, and one of the least visited national parks in America. The southern boundary of the park is marked by the the Rio Grande River, the international boundary with Mexico, or if your a Mexican, then the border is marked by the Rio Bravo del Norte.

We stayed in the Chisos Mountain Lodge where the scenery was spectacular, the flora, even in the middle of summer was abundant, as were the rather large insects, and frequently the wild deer would stroll through the camp.
