Where Mountains Float: Why Big Bend Is the Ideal Winter Trip

Big Bend beckons Texas travelers for the winter. With hundreds of miles of desert and mountain trails to hike, bike, and explore, Big Bend National Park is an adventure lover’s paradise. Sprawling over more than 801,100 acres and across 1,250 square miles in West Texas, (118 miles of that shared with the Mexican border) Big Bend was founded in the 1930s and named after a particularly large bend in the Rio Grande river. Over the centuries, the area that now constitutes Big Bend has been home to giant flying dinosaurs, Native American tribes, early pioneers, and a whole host of natural wonders including fossils, hot springs, mercury mines, and more bird species than any other national park in America.
