Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
Change things up with these side-trips from Big Bend National Park: Presidio (Fort Leaton & Big Bend Ranch State Park) and Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center (in Terlingua). Spend the 26th (Mon) exploring nature at Big Bend National Park. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, take in the dramatic natural features at The Balanced Rock, hike along S Rim Trail, and explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon.

In February, daytime highs in Big Bend National Park are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
