Day 5 - A Cold Morning in Big Bend

A cold and cloudy morning greeted us on our fifth day. The night had been incredibly windy. 
We had planned to hike up into Pine Spring Canyon that day but the low clouds and fog promised to make 
visibility an issue. Here is the view to the south, visibility was good and you can see all the way across the Rio Grande.

The view to the north was not so promising.

Our planned hike would take us into the clouds seen hugging the hillsides.

It was a very cold morning, Ilse didn't seem to want to get out of bed.

Ezan complained about the cold too, he didn't want to get out of the truck.. 
So we cashed it in a day early and headed home. We love Big Bend, but... there's no place like home ;-)
