We research U.S. national parks below latitude 35 ° N in hopes of finding somewhere awesome to hike and backpack in January or February. (Listener feedback with other options would be great! We’re looking for backpacking destinations that stay above freezing.) During this episode, we find Big Bend National Park, which sounds very promising. It’s down on the Rio Grande in Texas, so we could be talking for months about Cowboys and Indians, Mexican Banditos, Señoritas, Rattlesnakes, Mexican Black Bears, Cougars, Cacti, Armadillos, Louis L’amour and Larry McMurtry books, and who knows what else. I’m already having a blast!
