Big Bend National Park
Where we stayed: Rio Grande Village Campground
Hike: Boquillas Canyon Trail (1.4 miles roundtrip)
This was a pretty easy hike for the whole family could do. Though not the official river crossing area, there were Mexican guys on the other side who would come across and offer to give you a ride in the boat and on a burro into the Mexican village. Along the hiking trails in the park, you may come across decorated walking sticks and other handmade wares illegally "for sale." Take a stick (or wire scupture) and leave $5 in coffee can. The guy below in the boat was coming across the river to check on his sales.
During a windy moment, Jack decided to roam off trail to find a quiet spot to water the plants. When we go back to the RV later that day, he discovered his iphone was missing. So the next morning I took him back out the trail, and lucky for Jack, his phone was sitting right in the dirt where he went off trail.
I'll be sharing our travel plans, some reviews, cooking ideas (because I know you are all jealous of my easy-bake oven), and ... oh who am I kidding?! I'll be lucky to get our photos posted!
