After three months at the Chisos Basin Campground, it is time to say goodbye to Big Bend National Park. The park surprised us every day and every hike with breathtaking views, rock formations as if from a giants playground, nightly skies that display the beauty of the universe. Having the privilege of being here for three months is a blessing. We will miss you Big Bend NP and the Chisos Mountains, and we will always be an ambassador for you wherever we are. Auf Wiedersehen!
Another privilege we had was to meet so many people from all walks of life. Guests come to Chisos Basin because "the mountains are calling". They are looking for hikes they have never done before, views which were described to them by fellow hikers who were here before, time to relax and to adjust, and even to get married. Being a volunteer allowed us also to create wonderful relationships with many campers, park staff and the law enforcement rangers. We will miss you all! Auf Widersehen!
Our journey continues and we are looking forward to our next volunteer experience in the Ozarks. We will let you know about new hikes, new friends and new windows into nature.
