Respect for the Land Comes First

 

There is a tangible healing we feel when we return to nature. Nature, in good doses, is better than anything a doctor can prescribe. However, people don’t appreciate nature as much as they should. Furthermore, folks simply don’t get out enough to build that appreciation. Big Bend, a geological wonder, is one of the best places to feel nature’s impact and understand that appreciation. I believe that’s due to the overwhelming sense of creation.

We all must do all we can to preserve and protect this fragile environment. We all have to be respectful. Respect the land, the park rules, the surrounding communities, and preserve the dark skies. Stay on designated trails, leave no trace, leave wildlife alone.

Enjoy this most intriguing and beautiful land and its geological wonders. $0 is made from this website.

According to Indian legend, when the Great Creator made the Earth and had finished placing the stars in the sky, the birds in the air, and the fish in the sea, there was a large pile of rejected stony material left over. He threw this material into one heap and made the Big Bend.
