Another grand adventure in the Chisos Basin! Was able to watch a mother black bear with 3 cubs foraging at the base of the Window Lookout Trail. Some beautiful hikes and some great thunderstorms to watch through the window....

Such a vast area to see, but a "must do". All sorts of terrain to see. Unfortunately for us, they are had suffered storms and we could not visit Santa Elena because the roads were shut due to floods and little landslides. We missed out!!

We loved our time in the mountains! Beautiful sunrise and sunsets! Trails are a bit difficult for us seniors, but we managed to climb some. The roads here are good and not over crowded like we experienced in Yellowstone National Park.

Snow very unlikely. We just went late December and it was 60-70 F during day and 50-40 F at night. It can vary a lot tho
