We like taking our vacations to interesting places. I liked the desert. It has it's own beauty & is also interesting. Hiking is different & we had to adjust to prickly cacti & blazing heat. We traveled from Big Bend to Southern New Mexico in The Chihuahuan desert.
We live in the Midwest though & I have to admit, when we started home & began to see more trees & green I was very happy.

Love the drive through the desert. We saw all kinds of wildlife and plants. We saw plenty of road runner and lizards. We loved all the variety of cacti. The purple cactus was our favorite.

Love the wildlife here, watching tarantulas hop across the road and the roadrunners... But why do they want to cross the road?????

Northern Chihuahuan Desert is stunning. Wildlife, terrain, Cacti, and land formations enough to keep you busy for some time. This is a geological paradise. Meteorites can be found with ease on any simple hike. At night the game is to see who can spot the first constellation of the night because in ten minutes the sky will be lit up with so many stars it'll make your head spin. If you are a careful sky watcher you can see satellites crossing the sky.

Authentic desert landscape and flora and fauna. We stopped at several places to photograph the cactus, sage and other desert plants. We saw plenty of road runners, several snakes (Western Coachwhip) and an enormous Tarantula crossing the road !!
