trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
Awaking my first morning I found the famed Window hike ran right past my campsite.
I had two mugs of coffee. Then set off down the trail.
The moon still out.
I was first down the trail this morning. My only company were the large, friendly Mexican jays.
My first trail in Big Bend, I was impressed with construction and management. Check these stairs cut into stone.
Here’s the Window pour-off. The only outlet for water from the entire mountain basin.
Don’t get too close. It’s a 220ft drop to Chihuahuan Desert.
