Window view inside Balanced Rock.

For some context, I visited Big Bend National Park last month for a couple of days. This is the first of many photos from that trip which comes from Grapevine Hills.

The story:

This view is rewarded after a rough 7 mile off-road drive into the desert, followed by a mile long walk through the towering Grapevine Hill laccolith formations, and then a very athletic climb for the last quarter of a mile which requires climbing up and over boulders,until you reach the iconic Balanced Rock formation.

Once your here, you can walk underneath balanced rock itself, taking in the views of the Chihuahuan desert with Nugent Mountain in the background.
