This is the McKittrick Canyon Trail to The Notch. This particular hike was somewhat of an afterthought. When we were planning our trip to Texas, we knew that we wanted to spend most of our time at Big Bend. We decided that we also wanted to go to the Carlsbad Caverns. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is not far away. So we decided to spend a day there and picked this hike as one that looked promising.
Turns out this was our favorite hike of the trip. So many colors! Challenging but not too difficult. Beautiful scenic views at the top (and on the way up).
God pleasantly surprises us, often when we least expect it!
