Big Bend

   
 
 
 

Located on the Rio Grande, the river that separates the Mexican border from the American border, Big Bend National Park is one of the largest and most remote of America’s national park and also one of the least visited national parks. Big Bend features more than 80,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness, huge canyons, vast desert, and the entire Chisos Mountain range. The park itself is larger than the state of Rhode Island. Over 1,200 species of plants, 450 species of birds, and 56 species of reptiles have been identified at Big Bend.
