Big Bend National Park is beautiful this time of year: Because I am 62 and have the Golden Eagle pass they waived the 25 dollar entrance fee and allow camping for half price. Only 7 dollars at Cottonwood campground down on the Rio Grande river: Plenty of fun riding out here. This is River Road: Plenty of fun paved riding as well: Gorgeous desert mountains: and mesas: Or how about this mountain called Mule Ears Peak: Lots of ruins: October is a beautiful month down here. Temps in the low 80s, not too hot. Recent rains have brought out the desert flowers: Here is my office for this evening outside the Terlingua cafe catching some wifi: Live from Big Bend this is Big John, ace cub reporter honing my skills getting ready for my next epic South American ride report. Next stop, Carlsbad Caverns up in New Mexico. Will report back what I find. Stay tuned…….
