I am from the Big Bend area and am ashamed to say that I have not done many of the wonderful hikes that are there. I have recently moved to California, but I will be back, and you have inspired me to make that a goal!
New goal for me and my family: Hike to the South Rim in BBNP. Because I CAN do it and I have always wanted to!
Thank you for the inspiration

Yay! Glad you found your purpose/goal! I too have come that same ultimate goal, but not to hike through Just Big Bend but also several other places... Enchanted Rock, Dinosaur Valley and even go to the different caverns. Anything to be able to get out and enjoy the beautiful nature around us!
Its a goal that Can be achieved! RK- - - -
It may only be one step, measuring mere inches, but it IS a measurable amount of movement that is aimed in the right direction. Remember this the next time you feel you've not done enough and get discouraged. ~Me
The latest WooHoo for me was realizing an underlying purpose for losing weight: I want to hike through Big Bend again. I really had no idea that this was buried underneath all the stuff I piled on top of this goal. Yay! I turn 70 in November--what a great birthday present to me and my family this will be!
