On a map of so many options and so many parks, I am headed to Big Bend National Park. It is the least visited national park, most isolated, and among the most diverse in wildlife, plant life, and climate. Big Bend will be my first park to work and visit and I couldn’t be more thrilled. From June to December I will be calling this park home. I will be tasked with maintenance. Look out for a new youtube channel, more blog posts, and extensive Instagram updates! I will also be raking in countless miles of rucking/hiking to raise money for United States Veterans, first responders, and the National Park Foundation.
Created 17 million years ago from a massive volcanic eruption, the Chisos Basin in Big Bend breaks up the hot desert landscape with a breath taking mountain range unlike any other. Big Bend is occupied by 5,000 different species of living things, including Mexican Black Bear, Mountain Lions, and Diamond Head Rattlesnakes. The park itself is larger than the state of Rhode Island at 800,000 acres and sits along the Rio Grande. If you want a new, unique, and adventurous destination for your next trip, consider Big Bend!
