Little Bear's Adventure's
Big Bend National Park
The first time I was in Big Bend it was April and I did some posing with the wildlife. It was also about 100 degrees! In this photo I look like I'm posing with frozen toothpicks!
But it's January now and even the cactus is coated in a layer of ice! It's very tricky climbing around in a jungle of icy points!
I liked this plant better. It had tiny leaves instead of spikes. But the ice was beginning to melt and things were getting slippery.
You can see the blurry image of a mountain behind me. It was foggy and gray and sort of spooky in Big Bend!
I decided to go for one more spike adventure before getting in the warm car.
This one looked like a dangerous cucumber!
The ice actually made it easier to climb around on the spike clusters. I wish I'd had a small toboggan to ride down some of these icy slopes!
This was one of my damper adventures.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
