We are from the uk and are visiting texas for 3 weeks in October 2013.
We are thinking of driving from San Antonio to big bend, I know it's a long haul so if anyone can suggest things to see on the way and if possible a different route for the return journey.
How long should we stay in the park and where to stay?
Finally any advice on things to do would help, we are thinking a hike, cycle ride( will need to rent bikes) and if possible a canoe trip. We would also like to do some stargazing and visit the McDonald observatory.
Thanks in advance for the help.
