A Camping Trip to Big Bend National Park




This Fall, Fred has suggested that we do a camping trip to Big Bend, the National Park down on the Rio Grande in West Texas. This will be the second trip for the two of us to Big Bend, the last having been in 1993. We will leave in the evening on Wednesday, October 23rd, and return late on Sunday the 27th.


Using the Master Index

We took quite a few pictures while on our trip to Big Bend, and I thought that putting them all on a single page would result in a page that would be way too large- and possibly take a long time to load. So I have organized the album pages for this trip so that there is a separate page for each day of the trip. Using the index below, you can jump directly to a specific day if you wish.

When you are done looking at the pictures for this trip, you'll need to use one of the links at the top or bottom of any page to return to this Master Index. There, you will find a link taking you back to the very top of this page where the links to the next album page for 1996 (or the previous page or index, of course) can be found.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. To access the master index, please click HERE.
