Big Bend National Park Adventure | Texas Traveling

I

I have always loved to travel. With an aunt living in Colorado, my father living in New Jersey, and Grandparents living in Florida, I’ve been traveling quite a bit since the tender age of three. Its been a few years since moving to Texas and I’ve surprisingly only seen a small portion of it. Granted, Texas is HUGE and exploring it can be a bit daunting. My recent trip to Big Bend National Park in south Texas was a refreshing step in the right direction. Since returning, I can’t stop thinking about going back.

Upon arriving at our adorable Airbnb in Terlingua, Texas, we knew we were someplace unlike anywhere we had been before. This small desert ghost town felt like something out of a science fiction movie, all in the best ways. With the gorgeous mountains surrounding us, plenty of cacti, gorgeous sunsets, and a clear, star filled night sky, we were in paradise.

The first day in Big Bend National Park was spent hiking up to The Balanced Rock, a famous must-see in Texas. The overlook on The Balanced Rock was also spectacular. Although the sunset was gorgeous, the risen moon in the evening was my highlight of the evening. I definitely recommend this trail. The trail has some rigorous portions, but is an overall easy hike.

We awoke the second day of our trip surrounded by a thick fog. Honestly, there are few things I love more than a foggy landscape. The hike up Lost Mine Trail in Big Bend was amazing. I loved all of the overlooks blanketed in a cloud. These conditions were perfect for prism photography, giving the illusion of floating mountains. Lost Mine Trail was full of magic and beauty. I highly recommend this all day hike if you ever visit Big Bend National Park.

This Texas Adventure made me very inspired to travel more in 2018. Contact me for adventure sessions.

A few of these images are available for print in my Society6 shop. Feel free to check it out. I really appreciate your support.

These are all so beautiful. I especially love the ones with the mountains and all of the fog. Being able to just photograph all of the beauty you see when you travel is one thing I miss about taking vacations before kids. You are an amazing Texas travel photographer. I can’t wait to see where you go next.

I love this post so much. Big bend is one of my favorite spots. The canyons, the hiking, the wildlife, the fact that you can see the Milky Way with your naked eye. It’s magical. Seeing these photos made me miss being in tx and only an 8 hour drive away. These are absolutely gorgeous, and also reminds me how important it is to document your own personal travels.
