My hope was to do something similar in 2015 and I made plans to go again. As I watched the weather another blizzard was making its way across west Texas and it looked like I would have similar conditions. With the way the weather looked, Big Bend seemed to be the better option as it would get snow but be more on the edge of the storm.

What was normally a 10 hour drive had become an almost 14 hour day of zig-zagging to avoid the snow but I had made it. The drive was interesting and seeing the fall color on the Devil's River was a big surprise that I was glad to be able to photograph. Now, here I was in a national park that I had almost all to myself and there was snow on the ground in Texas! Talk about a great way to start a trip!!
