Big Bend -  December 1999

Day 1 -  Sunrise along the Old Ore Road

We arrived at Big Bend National Park late at night. We drove down Old Ore Road about a mile or so 
and found a wide place in the road to pull off to the side. We slept in the back of the truck rather than putting up 
our tent. The next morning I got up early and went for a walk with Sweetie Pie to watch the sunrise from a nearby hilltop. 
Here is a view of the area, you can see the truck along the side of the road. Tornillo Creek, a dry creekbed, can be seen 
snaking across the desert. The photo provides a sense of the empty expanse of the Big Bend area.

Sweetie Pie enjoys the view.
