Greetings from Big Bend National Park!

Of all the places I have ever been, Big Bend is where I feel most at home. Being there fills my heart with joy and my soul with peace. Hot as it is, I wish I was there right now.

Sincerely,

Elliot

P.S. I support the parks because… This is why it is important for us to treasure these places and keep them safe. Knowing they are there gives us comfort and enhances our lives.

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park features broad expanses of Chihuahuan Desert shrubland and grassland interspersed with smaller areas of high-elevation woodland in the Chisos Mountains. Riparian and wetland areas hugging the Rio Grande and associated with springs throughout the park represent geographically small but ecologically valuable contributions to the park, while deep canyons along the river are among the park's most striking features.
