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.
