Rugged Landscape Across the Chihuahuan Desert (Big Bend National Park)

A look to the south-southeast near the end of the Grapevine Hills Trails while hiking one early afternoon in Big Bend National Park. What I wanted to capture with this view was a sweeping view looking across this desert landscape with the large rocks and boulders scattered about across the many hillsides. Big peaks of the Chisos Mountains are off in the distance with a few wisp of clouds in the blue skies above.
