My wife and I have reservations for spring break week (March 10-15) at Terlingua Ranch Lodge. It'll be our first visit to Big Bend (National and State) Parks. We're pretty much novices for outdoors but in decent shape (for mid-50's). We're interested in easy to moderate hiking, horseback tours (no experience) and river tours (no experience) as well as scenic drives and stargazing/sunsets (live in Houston so don't see many stars or much scenery normally). Also just some general touristy stuff--shopping, ghost town, etc. Also--trying to decide between driving our Infiniti G35 vs our small SUV--prefer Infiniti for long drive from Houston but not sure about roads in parks for a low to the ground car.
Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.
