This was our last full day in Big Bend (sad). I guess I forgot to write a journal entry for this day, hmm. We did another desert hike but didn't get started until later in the day. The morning was spent checking out birds at a tiny watering hole we found. I spotted the Crissal Thrasher (two of them) which was a life bird, so that was all exciting for the bird nerds (us). I got a totally crap photo of it just for the record but it's too bad to post here.
I'll post the bird photos from that spot later - though I already put some up of the Hermit Thrushes andRuby-crowned Kinglet.
The hike, like everything in Big Bend, did not dissappoint and I was pretty pumped about it being 80something degrees, since I thrive in the heat. Heat! Sun! Two beautiful things I require. Let's not laugh about that hat I'm rocking. That thing is badass. It's not one of the kinda goofy ones you're thinking of, I promise. And if you saw it up close you'd learn to love it too.
Anyway, the hike followed a sandy wash, with fairly deep sand. Since it was kind of the middle of the day, there were not a lot of wildlife sightings (though we did see another Crissal Thrasher). And that is all. We went back to the watering hole later in the afternoon but there was no action so we left and figured we hit it up one more time before we left the park in the morning.
