Big Bend: Lost Mine Trail

Even though Big Bend was months ago, I can't not post some photos of the most impressive and beautiful part of the park that we were fortunate enough to see. Adam and I wanted to do one "bigger" hike during our weekend, but admittedly not a 10+ mile one.  After some research about trails in the park, we learned that the Lost Mine Trail offered some of the best views in all of Big Bend, while climbing a moderate 1,000 feet over 5 miles. This trail was a perfect length for a fun morning hike, and provided absolutely stunning views both at its summit and throughout the roundtrip. Adam was very brave given his fear of heights, and even crept toward the edge with me to take it all in, which is itself a real testament to the trail's beauty.
