Big Bend National Park, Texas, USA (with Map & Photos)

Big Bend is a national park in the very south of Texas in the USA, one of the most beautiful natural sites along the border with Mexico, where two countries and different cultures meet. Here, in the middle of a desert landscape with forested mountains, along the winding Rio Grande and its tributaries chained in canyons, there is a real geological wonder - with marine fossils, prehistoric fossils and a variety of flora and fauna. It was very interesting for us to visit there and not only see blooming cacti, but also follow the migration of rare birds and wild animals.
