Big Bend National Park

We roll into Alpine, TX with a wipping tailwind and are happy to see a bike shop.  Off our bikes and two steps later we meet Tim who lives in Alpine on the weekends.  Next thing we know, out tent is set up in his back yard, we’re out to dinner with him and Kaci and then making plans to use his Surburban to drive 110 miles to Big Bend National park and stay in Kaci’s stunning hotel in Terilingua for the night.

Something we both wanted to do but decided that this was a bike trip, not National Park tour.  However, when someone offers their car and then the person next to them offers you a night in a boutique hotel in a National Park, you don’t say no.


Sooooo happy to be alive. Felt like we were traveling at MACH 10 since we were in a car again..weird.

Gotta love that Texas has bears

We snuck into Mexico by crossing the Rio Grande, it was a whopping 5 inches deep!

Thought it was appropriate to do a little salsa in Mexico before running back to safety.
